BERLIN (Reuters) - Armin Laschet, leader of Germany's Christian Democrats (CDU), won the backing of senior party members at an internal meeting to run as the conservative candidate to succeed Angela Merkel at a September federal election, party sources said on Tuesday.
Ahead of the meeting, Markus Soeder, Laschet's Bavarian rival for the conservative candidacy, said it was up to the CDU to decide which of them should run as their bloc's candidate for chancellor, and that he would accept a decision for his rival.

It is often said of Armin Laschet that he never even wanted to go into politics, but ended up joining the CDU only due to the persistent persuasion of an acquaintance. Four decades on, he is the leader of Germany’s most populous state, leader of the Christian Democrats and the conservative alliance’s candidate for chancellor.
If the CDU – which has governed Germany for 51 of the past 71 years – wins September’s federal election, he will step into Angela Merkel’s shoes as the leader of Europe’s largest economy.

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's two rivals to succeed Angela Merkel as conservative chancellor candidate in a September election went head to head on Tuesday to win the support of lawmakers, exposing deep rifts within the parliamentary bloc.
The race between Armin Laschet, leader of Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), and Markus Soeder, head of the Bavarian CSU sister party, has descended into a messy spat just two days after both vowed to make a quick and amicable decision.

He said: “I see not one person in her cabinet who I would have entrusted with the management of the smallest branch office IBM ever had when I was President of IBM Europe.
“That‘s why her arch-enemy Friedrich Merz, who lost twice the contest for succeeding her, is the only winner of yesterday’s election in the CDU.
“His influence will rise, and he will play an important role in both the party and in the next Federal Government."

Mr Henkel added: “The result also shows that Merkel‘s legacy will move more and more from propaganda to reality.”

The sleepwalker
Armin Laschet has made a dismal start
HE EXCUSES were plentiful as Germany’s centre-right Christian Democrats (
CDU) slumped to two of their worst-ever state-election defeats on March 14th. The party was up against popular incumbents in Green-led Baden-Württemberg and in Rhineland-Palatinate, run by the Social Democrats (
SPD). The
CDU’s state chapters had chosen weak candidates. And anyway Armin Laschet (pictured), the party’s leader, had said before the votes that state elections have their own character. National politics is another matter entirely.

When Markus Söder, the Bavarian regional leader, broke ranks with Angela Merkel over Germany’s decision to suspend use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on Tuesday, it was more than just frustration at a flawed policy.
It was a sign Mr Söder, the chancellor’s loyal ally throughout the pandemic, believes his moment has come to seize the crown for himself.

Shameless deals for medical equipment, dubious foreign contacts and corona crisis mismanagement: Angela Merkel's conservatives are in bad shape as the election campaign looms. How did they lose their way?

Armin Laschet, the newly anointed head of Germany's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), has been a politician for two-and-a-half decades. He knows how difficult it can be, and how quickly things can change. But even he might be getting a bit dizzy these days.
Not even two months have passed since he was elected head of the country's largest, most powerful political party, essentially transforming him into the chancellor-in-waiting and designated successor to Chancellor Angela Merkel. What could possibly go wrong? After all, the coronavirus vaccines had arrived, signaling a path out of the pandemic. It looked like it would be a good year for him and the CDU.

Like many good English idioms, the phrase "canary in the coal mine" has an interesting history. Given the birds’ rapid heart rate, diminutive size, and high metabolism, canaries served as an early warning industrial safety system for much of the 20th century.

Angela Merkel profile (Image: Express)
This latest poll comes just weeks after results from the Insa opinion polls for BILD found the CDU/CSU was also down by two points (34.5 percent), marking the lowest fall in three months.
Insa boss Hermann Binkert said the CDU party is visibly weakened due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He said: "Confidence is sinking week by week and has decoupled from the approval of the coronavirus measures.
"That's why a lot can still change before the general election.

For nearly a year, large swaths of Europe’s economy have been in a deep freeze.
Trillions in state-backed subsidies and inexpensive loans have kept businesses alive, while governments pay millions of furloughed workers to stay home. In much of Europe, layoffs or forced bankruptcies are banned.

"The SPD also has a chance of becoming the second strongest party.
"Their additional exploitable potential is higher than that of the Greens."

He continued: "It is currently impossible to govern against the Union.

"But the coalition options, which currently still lack a parliamentary majority, are not really far behind.
"At the latest when the CDU/CSU falls below 30 percent, majorities against them will be possible."
Following the opinion polls, the Greens' Managing Director Michael Kellner vowed to defeat the CDU in the upcoming election.

In extraordinary times, ordinariness can be a virtue. That, in any case, is the hope of Armin Laschet, who was elected as the new leader of Germany’s largest party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), on 22 January. A moderate Catholic from Aachen, Germany’s westernmost city, Laschet captured the party leadership with a deliberately uninspiring program of pragmatism and competence.

Over the past month we have seen improvements in the daily numbers of new COVID-19 cases across Europe except for France, Spain and Portugal, where cases are still rising. We expect lockdowns well into March as well but with gradual easing during Q2 on the back of the improving weather conditions and roll-out of the vaccine. On the vaccine front the European Medical Agency approved the third vaccine, AstraZeneca, which is set to deliver 40 million doses to EU during Q1. However, the AstraZeneca shot are less effective at only 62% and especially for people aged 65+. Lastly, positive news from both Pfizer and Moderna on effectiveness against COVID- 19 variants (both UK and South African) has decreased the probability of the tail risk scenario of a COVID-19 variation cycle in 2022, given reasons for still remaining our cautiously optimistic view on the Euro area,
