‘I’m not a gam­bler’

Sunday Tribune - - WORLD -

BER­LIN: Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel, pic­tured, and her So­cial Demo­crat chal­lenger, Martin Schulz, were still fighting hard yeste­day for ev­ery vote be­fore today’s na­tional elec­tion, but they do have one thing com­mon: nei­ther is a gam­bler.

Merkel, asked by the news­pa­per Bild what she would do if she won mil­lions of euros in the Lotto lot­tery, said, “I per­son­ally don’t play Lotto.”

Merkel said she do­nated any money she won in awards and prizes to char­i­ta­ble groups.

Schulz, the for­mer Euro­pean Par­lia­ment pres­i­dent, said he also didn’t gam­ble. “I never wanted to leave the ques­tion of my suc­cess in life up to chance or a lot­tery drum,” he told Bild. – Reuters
