Mrs Merkel has been for perhaps a decade the most important political leader in continental Europe, having been head of the CDU since 2000. But there are now significant doubts whether she will serve a full fourth term to 2021.

ANGELA Merkel said on Monday that she prefers fresh elections in 2018 than the option of running a minority government. This follows the dramatic collapse of coalition talks which poses the most serious threat to her continued power since she became German chancellor in 2005.
