GERMAN MERKLE EKES OUT A WIN, CHANCELLOR FOR THE FOURTH TERM
ICHEOKU says the Madam Matron, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, won a reelection for the fourth term but with a narrower majority, suggesting that Germans are getting increasingly frustrated by some of her policies particularly her immigration policy which is flooding Germany with foreigners as well as Islamist refugees. It would appear that the country men and women has had enough, but decided to give her one more chance to fix the mess which she created with her unrestricted immigration policy.
Her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) alliance with the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) secured a mere 32.5 percent of the votes; her main rival, the Social Democrats (SPD), led by Martin Schulz, garnered 20 percent while the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) won a surprising 13.5 percent of the votes.
ICHEOKU says it is instructive that Madam Merkel has been in office since 2005, as long as three American presidents have been in office; and you wonder what type of democracy is it they practice in Germany and whether those Germans still have any moral authority to complain about other countries which do not practice democracy, but which have a dictatorship and one party rule system. ICHEOKU says congratulations to Madam Matron and hopefully she will retract from her open borders policy and keep Germany, Germans.
