Reuters: Weakened Merkel to face judgment of her Bavarian allies

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s political future rests in the hands of the Christian Social Union (CSU) on Sunday, when the Bavarian party’s leadership meets to decide whether to accept migration deals she brought back from Brussels.

Nine months after elections that saw her lose votes to the far right, a weakened Merkel was forced to turn to European Union neighbors to help resolve a conflict with her allies after they rebelled against her immigration policy.

The party’s leader, interior minister Horst Seehofer, threatened to turn migrants back from the Bavarian border, a move that would almost certainly precipitate a government collapse.

At a Brussels summit this week, leaders hammered out a deal to share out refugees on a voluntary basis and create “controlled centers” inside the European Union to process asylum requests.

WNU Editor: Her coalition partners have a choice .... get rid of her now, collapse the government,  and suffer serious loses in the election that would be called. Or wait till the next election (regional elections are in the fall) .... where they will face serious losses . I am willing to bet that they are going to do nothing, give the support that Angela Merkel needs to survive, and hope that the migration crisis will not be an issue when election time comes. My prediction .... the migration crisis is not going to go away.

Angela's Kabuki theater with the refugee summit bought her exactly 1 week's time.

Losses will be heavier long term if they wait.

German politics will be extremely fractious for 2 to 4 years at least due to the vanity of Angela and others and their benighted do-gooderism without a clue.

WNU is probably right about the elections.

Thx Merkel!

"Losses will be heavier long term if they wait." This is likely correct. I think WNU is probably right about what they will do.
