The economy of the Grand coalition to your year Are a bad testimony. Crafts President Hans Peter Woll zeal attested to the Alliance of the CDU and the SPD a “very modest” results.

the President of The Federal Association of German industry (BDI), Dieter Kempf, spoke of “massive dissatisfaction” in the company. Leading coalition politicians showed, meanwhile, is confident that the coalition holds until the end of 2021.

this Thursday is the Grand coalition under Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) is exactly one year in office. The coalition has a lot on the way, such as in the Social and family policy. But there are also many of the points in dispute, such as the basic pension or the solidarity surcharge. The political scientist Oskar Niedermayer called the balance sheet “to grow”. “In principle, the government works in many areas”, he stated in the “Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung” (Wednesday).

craft, President of the wool shows zeal, however, disillusioned. He said the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” (Wednesday), promised the coalition had more dynamics and less bureaucracy. “However, many of the new laws have made the life harder.” “We don’t need rules to Bridge part-time, Home-Office, or who knows what,” complained the wool diligence prior to the commencement of the International craft fair this Wednesday in Munich, Germany.

BDI-President Kempf hit in the same notch. “The impatience in the economy is growing,” he said of the “Passauer Neue Presse” (Wednesday). The government spend the money wrong. The pension proposal of the Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD) would cost in five years, between 30 and 50 billion euros. At the same time, the Artificial intelligence should only be funded with three billion euros by 2025. “This is a mismatch”, complained Kempf.

SPD-Vice-President Malu Dreyer defended the basic pension and the SPD demanded a waiver on a means-test. “Such a test is in order when it comes to transfer services of the state. The respect-pension is not a benefit,” said the Rhineland-Palatinate Minister-President of the Newspapers of the Funke media group (Wednesday). Ex-SPD chief Franz Müntefering. “It needs to go after the need,” he said of the “Passauer Neue Presse” (Wednesday).

Dreyer stressed at the same time, the SPD was started with the intention to govern until the end of the legislative period in 2021. “There is no reason at all, constantly and always talk about whether a coalition with the Union will continue,” said Dreyer.

Meanwhile, Juso-chief Kevin Kühnert (SPD) went a step further and called the conditions for a continuation of the Grand coalition. It would need to be considered in the first step: “Has been completed for what we agreed? Not for nothing, we have provided many projects with a concrete date,” said Kühnert the “Tagesspiegel” (Wednesday). It is the decision of the basic pension, as well as the adoption of the climate act would be in this year. This was a “concrete test”. Also important is the question: “What have we got on the pan for the next two years? There are things that we want to bring together?” Then it might need an “Update” for the coalition agreement. “But if we have an argument of mass, must be brought to an end.”

Minister of health, Jens Spahn (CDU), called discussions about a collapse of the coalition, by contrast, an “art debate in Berlin-Mitte”. He also rejected claims that the conservative values-Union, according to which the new CDU-Chairman, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer should quickly replace Chancellor Merkel. “Angela Merkel is elected for four years as Chancellor. I assume that she is a Chancellor for four years. And I hope you used your four years of Federal Minister of health. So I plan to anyway,” said Spahn on Tuesday evening in the rbb-TV.

former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder sees the CDU in a strategic Dilemma, after Merkel does not want to compete 2021 as Chancellor. Merkel must now think about when you want to give up, said Schröder on Tuesday evening at a “Handelsblatt”-event in Berlin. The CDU should continue to be a politician until the end of the legislature in the year 2021, given the CDU’s major problems in the election campaign.

EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger (CDU) said at the same event, you must wait and see whether the Grand coalition of the CDU and the SPD survive at all in the late autumn. He hope that the Alliance will hold. It could be that the SPD get out of the business after the European elections in may and the three state elections in East Germany in the autumn of the coalition. “It may be that the social Democrats will collapse.”

Prior to that, Ex-SPD warned-Chef Müntefering. “The result of the election to the Bundestag 2017 until the next Federal election,” he told the “Passauer Neue Presse”. With regard to football, he added: “anyone Who thinks that in the second half, not the game field to go, can’t win. Who ended the Grand coalition, is not going to be rewarded by the voters.”
