Merkel aus britischer Sicht

Angela Merkel may be forced to hand over power to her successor sooner than planned due to health fears sparked by her shaking bouts, senior Christian Democrat sources say

  • Merkel, 64, was seen shaking yet again when Finland’s leader visited this week
  • She has promised to go by 2021 and has handed over the party chairman’s job 
  • Her likely successor, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, has proved gaffe-prone 
  • The Chancellor has insisted she is healthy but offered no explanation for shaking
