Celebrities look back on the Merkel years

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s term of office ends in a few days. Time to look back.

Berlin – Actress Uschi Glas thanked the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) for her crisis management.

“For 16 years you have steered our country through crises for which you could not help but which you mastered for us,” said the Munich resident of the magazine “Bunte” (Thursday) addressed to Merkel. “Be it the euro bailout or the financial crisis. I don’t want to call 2015 a crisis. With your words “We have already achieved so much, we can do it!” you saved the lives of countless people after men at the top of other EU countries refused to help. ”She will never forget that. The 77-year-old had already spoken in public for Merkel before the 2017 federal election.

In addition to glass, other German celebrities also look back on the term of office of the first German Chancellor in the “Bunte”. Moderator Frauke Ludowig told the magazine: “What you will miss above all is your confidence and optimism – in all respects.” In his own words, singer Heino particularly appreciates the politician’s “indecency”.

Angela Merkel was sworn in as German Chancellor for the first time on November 22, 2005. She no longer ran for the federal election in 2021. Now the coalition negotiations for a new government without Union participation seem to be turning onto the home straight. dpa
