Claim: Germany's Angela Merkel To Step Down From Party Leadership After Humiliating Elections

ㅤ"News agency DPA cited unnamed sources within Germany’s ruling party on Monday morning that Dr Merkel, who has led the CDU since 2000 and has been Chancellor since 2005, would be stepping down in December in time for party conference.
ㅤAlthough the CDU would then select a new leader, Dr Merkel is expected to attempt to stay on as Chancellor — Germany’s Prime Minister equivalent position — until the next national elections in 2021. This, Associated Press reports, is to give her successor enough time to build a profile as the leader but without handing over the reigns of the nation which Merkel has held for 13 years."
