Chancellor Angela Merkel said the German elections in September were a “very close call” and that it would be foolish to see the result as a foregone conclusion, despite her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leading the polls.
“I am indeed sure of the fact that the elections will be a very, very close call. It would be extraordinarily careless to think I’ll be re-elected chancellor in any case and don’t need to do anything about it anymore,” she told Germany’s ZDF television on Sunday.
“I am campaigning to be chancellor for another four years and in the next five weeks I will put all my effort into making that possible,” she added.
