Posted on 12/07/2018 8:19:14 AM PST by GuavaCheesePuff
Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has been elected leader of Germany's ruling Christian Democrat Union (CDU) party, bringing Angela Merkel's 18 years at the helm to an end.
As the party's general secretary, Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer was favourite to take over when Mrs Merkel announced her retirement in October.
But she clinched only a narrow victory over Friedrich Merz, a long-time Merkel rival, in a run-off vote in Hamburg, with 51.8% of the vote.
Now the head of Germany's largest party, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, 56, could become the next German chancellor.

Out with the old..in with the old.
Darn! Fred Mertz lost! I’ll bet Ethel is mad as hell!
Her nickname is ‘Mini-Merkel’...
What I’ll generally say is that as the next election likely comes up (2021 is the scheduled period)...she won’t win the Chancellorship. But the SPD Party is in such a rut....they probably won’t clear more than 14-percent of the vote, and you are looking at a clear path for the Green Party to win.
Are there no men left in Germany? What is with all the female leaders?
Friedrich Merz parts his hair on the right just like Hitler did.
Guten Morgen, Frau Kramp!
Egad the ugly it burns!!
German frau gone lesbo?
She and her husband have three children. It is an idiotic conceit of some men that nobody can be happily married without meeting some standard of ideal appearance.
Only Adolf Hitler brought more destruction upon Germany.

Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic is always an option I guess. The AfD will be shouldered out of a role in gov't, the same way Le Pen's party has been in France (until the upcoming perhaps).
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...
So the happily married kraut is very merrily doing her best to destroy Germany and all the civilized western society!
Well how fashionable!
Merkel Mini-me Annegret something-something, who’s name sounds like a pharmaceutical company, narrowly defeated the superior conservative candidate Friedrich Merz.
Well, that kinda answers my question.
