Merkel takes blame

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel took par­tial re­spon­si­bil­ity for her party’s worst-ever per­for­mance in a Ber­lin state elec­tion, ac­knowl­edg­ing that her gov­ern­ment’s poli­cies at the na­tional level were a fac­tor. Merkel pledged to work harder to ad­dress peo­ple’s con­cerns, par­tic­u­larly on mi­grants. Speak­ing along­side her Chris­tian Demo­cratic Union’s may­oral can­di­date, Frank Henkel, Merkel called the sec­ond place fin­ish with only 17.6 per cent of the vote “bit­ter”. “I take re­spon­si­bil­ity as party leader and chan­cel­lor,” she said.
