Where Angela Merkel scored and weakened

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 | World News

Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel gave a cancellation in the TV "Wahlarena" of the upper limit for refugees. Otherwise, the CDU politician was not able to elicit any concreteness from voters and handy moderators.

The concept:
The "Wahlarena" in the ARD has existed since 2005 in federal and provincial elections. Representatively selected citizens put their questions directly to the candidates, the moderators are holding back. The questions are not known to the candidates before. On Monday was Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), a week later follows challenger Martin Schulz (SPD).

Where Merkel scored:
Merkel gave herself charmingly, asked, went to the questions. Nevertheless, it was almost never concrete. Only once did she realize: When a young voter wanted to know whether the upper limit for refugees from the Bayern plan would be implemented. "I do not want them. I do not believe it to be practical. Guaranteed. "There was applause.

When a woman with Down's syndrome asked why children with this disability were allowed to be driven off a few days before birth, Merkel responded confidently: With the Union, it was "at least," that a consultation was necessary for the parents. "When you see what a great person you are, it's great that your parents have thought about it again." There was also great applause.

Merkel was also in the discussion with a family father from Thuringia, who asked who could "protect" us "in the next 30 years from" foreigners ". He was afraid that tax money could flow towards refugees, but money for the social system and schools was lacking. "We did not cut anything, on the contrary, we increased social benefits, for all people," Merkel said. Nevertheless, the situation of 2015 should not be repeated. And he explained to the man a little in a friendly, factual tone the situation in Syria. Final appeal: "Do you have an open heart for people to whom it is much, much worse than us." Again applause.

 The chancellor skilfully sent the Chancellor the other topics. Why go to work if after the deduction of the daycare fees 150 euros remain? Merkel: There is a "trend" to abolish the charges, "the federal government is trying to support". Does Germany achieve its CO2 target? "I am working on the fact that we can get it." As the presenters let Merkel get away with such slippery answers, the time rippled. And the clock was playing for her anyway.

Where Merkel was smiling:
Apart from the fact that Merkel would have preferred to avoid fixing the upper limit, she did not get along well with some questions.

  This included an elderly caregiver trainee who complained about the condition in the homes: "There are people around the clock in their exits." Why Merkel does not finally introduce a fixed nursing care rate, he asked under applause. Merkel talked to some hospitals that "if necessary" the urgently needed forces in Eastern Europe must be advertised and demanded "better wage agreements". It is as if politics could do something for better wages. Content? None.

And what does the chancellor of an 18-year-old, who is already worried about her retirement, return? With Riester, one wants to "look, that it becomes somewhat less bureaucratic". And she did not rule out the pension at 70: the pension until 67 is valid until 2029. After that, you had to "get together". When a physicist asked why she had to pay the double health insurance contribution to her private pension, Merkel answered succinctly. "That was then introduced under red-green." The questioner keck: "That can be changed!" Scornful laughter.

The Teflon chancellor, there she was again. Critical voices were mostly sent to Merkel. She gave herself to the ground, even revealed the facts: A spectator promised to follow her: "Give me your address."

Each questioner received at least one praise. Merkel was happy about young men who choose or go to the Bundeswehr, about dedicated women with Down syndrome, and even about the family father, who was concerned about "alienation". The moderator duo made it easy for the chancellor, however, by itself little afterwards.

Worse still, when the issue of diesel scandal and party-minded parties finally became exciting and critical for the chancellor, Cichowicz dismissed the question: "The point is, I believe, clear." The opposite was the case, because he left Merkel with a quasi-false claim. "The parties' funding legislation has meant that there is hardly any Dax company to donate at all," Merkel said. In order to see that this is largely wrong, one can look into the immediate releases of the Bundestag.

Daimler, the family Quandt / Klatten (BMW) or the association of the chemical industry: As before, much large industrial money flows mainly towards CDU and FDP, which is certainly hidden by denominations, as the viewer noted. In short: the already little bit of a biting format, handy moderators and a sovereign chancellor ensured that the evening went to the Union. Martin Schulz will be able to match the next week.
