Germany: Merkel challenged by populists?
Date created :
Former European Parliament chief Martin Schulz, now appointed as the Social Democrats' candidate, is challenging Angela Merkel in general elections set for September. Merkel, who is running for a fourth term as chancellor, is often described as the stalwart of a liberal and united Europe. So how will these two pro-EU candidates fare in a country where the far-right, anti-EU AfD party is growing in strength?
