Germany Election: Chancellor Angela Merkel will retire after 16 years, know how important these elections are for India

Berlin, 26/9:Chancellor Angela Merkel, who ruled Germany for 16 years, is now ready to retire. In the general elections going to be held in Germany on 26 September, the only question in the minds of voters is who will come on top of Europe’s largest economy. This general election of Germany will also affect the stability of the country and the European Union. Angela Merkel is not standing in the election this time. For the first time in German history, Merkel will not be a candidate for the Vorpommern-Rügen-Vorpommern-Greifswald parliamentary constituency, which she has consistently represented since East Germany’s annexation in 1990.

Voting on Sunday pointed to a very close race between Merkel’s center-right Union Bloc and the middle-left Social Democrats. Armin Lasquet is in the race for the post of chancellor from Union Block. On the other hand, the outgoing Finance Minister and Vice Chancellor Olaf Scholz is the candidate from the other side.

Recent polls show the Social Democrats to be marginally ahead. In a country with a population of around 83 million people, about 6.04 crore people are eligible to elect members of the lower house of parliament, which chooses the head of government.
