Photo: The Christian Democratic Union of Germany elects by Zuma/TASS the new chairman. Angela Merkel who led party of 18 years and who in the German press is called long ago by mutti or "mother", will leave the post, but will remain the chancellor. Today in Germany really big day. At a congress of CDU delegates elect the new chairman of the party, and de facto he can become in three years the new chancellor of the country. The ruling party, and the last 12 years it appointed the chancellor and defined policy not only Germany, but also the whole Europe. Candidates for a post of the head of CDU three: first, it is Angela Merkel's successor Annegret Crump-Karrenbauer. She was the prime minister of the smallest, even, one may say, the tiny earth in Germany Saar — on the area is slightly more than Moscow. Anyway, exactly Merkel brought Crump-Karrenbauer to Berlin, appointed the secretary general of CDU. The press calls her not only the chancellor's successor, but also her girlfriend. The name — "Merkel Version 2.0" was assigned to Crump-Karrenbauer. She is considered by a certain clone of the chancellor, and it is not unreasonable: it is same modest, quite simple. Supports, in fact, all statements of Merkel. The only distinction with the chancellor — the fact that she has three children. Among all candidates Crump-Karrenbauer costs most of all on the center. Not too conservative by the standards of Christian democrats and not too liberal. According to journalists, she would be capable to unite the union which now very much storms.

Once he conceded to Merkel the post of the chairman of CDU fraction in the Bundestag. Its promotion now — Merkel's call and a political revenge. He does not deny it. He is considered the adherent of the right wing in CDU. For example, he supported change of migration policy, nearly before change of the constitution. However, after scandal took the words back. Its victory, of course, can cause a revolution in CDU because Merkel remains a chancellor till 2021, but a question whether it will enjoy support of party and also whether will lead Mertz's election to fast resignation of Merkel. The third — the Minister of Health Yents Shpan, the liberal wing. But upon chances of a victory at it is not present. What of candidates would be theoretically more favorable than Russia, it is difficult to tell. Quite recently Crump-Karrenbauer and Mertz passed an opinion on a situation in the Sea of Azov. Crump-Karrenbauer unexpectedly suggested to close the European and American ports for the Russian ships from the Crimea. Mertz said that, time the situation is so heated, it is necessary to think once again over construction "Nord Stream — 2".
