THE Angela Merkel leads Germany, Europe’s largest economy, since 2005. The chancellor will not run for a fifth term in the September 26 election in Germany.
In statements today, Merkel noted that there is a tendency among women politicians to want to be more effective, although there are exceptions to this generalization.
Some other women have done much more for gender equality than she did, she added.
However, as he noted, he believes that she also achieved something.
Merkel also said she did not have time to think about what she would do when her last term as chancellor ended, adding that it would be important for Germany to have a place in the EU climate plans while the new government is formed, as broadcast by Reuters and rebroadcast by the Athens News Agency.
