Merkel to stand down as CDU leader, stay German Chancellor

The EU is trying to negotiate a Brexit deal with Britain, deal with a budget crisis in Italy and faces the prospect of populist anti-establishment parties making gains in the European Parliament elections in May.
"With these latest results, it has simply become untenable that Merkel continues to lead the CDU", said Mujtaba Rahman, managing director at Eurasia Group, a consultancy.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU has scored 27% of the vote in the state election in Hesse, as the preliminary tally indicates. Sunday's vote in the economically strong state of Hesse proves that the country wants change.
Meanwhile, at 19.8 percent the SPD tumbled into a neck-and-neck race for second place with the ecologist Greens, who garnered 19.6 percent.
The campaign in Hesse, which includes Germany's financial center of Frankfurt, has been largely overshadowed by the woes of a federal coalition that has been in office only since March.
Merkel's first order of business when she speaks at 1:00 pm (1200 GMT) in Berlin will be buttering up the Social Democrats, who have threatened to leave the coalition that many blame for years of disappointing electoral setbacks.
But the night's biggest victor was the Greens.
And Mr. Bouffier, noting that his party fared better in the Hesse vote than it now does in polls nationally, seems keen to stay in power.

Increasing numbers of SPD members are calling for the party to quit government immediately and lick its wounds in opposition, as it is presently polling below AfD nationwide, at 15 percent to the far-right's 16 percent. He demanded a new vote by the SPD's rank and file on whether to quit the coalition.
But such a move, triggering a collapse of the government, would nearly certainly lead to a snap election. And with the party now polling at record-low levels, SPD heavyweights know that they stand to lose the most from that nuclear option.
But at home, even a change-averse electorate has started to grow tired of the leader dubbed "Mutti" (Mummy) and the cautious and glacial style of consensus politics her coalition government is now associated with.
Die Welt reporter Robin Alexander said the path could now be clear for Merkel's chosen heir, CDU general secretary Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, to take the reins if no other credible candidate emerges by December. He urged the coalition parties to "show that they have the power to work together".
