The immigration crisis raging in the EU, signaled the end of an era of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, experts say. Now the once 1 of the most respected politicians of Europe can no longer feel on your own post is completely confident.
Until not so long ago occurred time all Western rating agencies and political experts confidently called German Chancellor Angela Merkel, one of the most successful politicians in the world, because she managed to actually lead Europe. In Germany its credibility was unquestioned - Merkel managed to win 3 elections in a row.
But with the advent of the European Union the acute immigration crisis, things started to change. Germany is preparing to host about a million refugees, and against this background, the rating of the German Chancellor begins to decline. This also increases the degree of criticism of Angela Merkel from her fellow party members.
"Some of her close political colleagues argues that Merkel may leave Chancellor post until next elections in 2017. The idea of 4 consecutive administrations Merkel, widely discussed a few months ago, and at the moment seems impossible", - quotes RIA Novosti commentator at the Financial Times Gideon Rachman.
The specialist is convinced that the Merkel government released the situation with migrants out of control, threatening to put on previously brilliant career of German Chancellor cross. German civil servants in public I repeat maidens Merkel "we have the opportunity to do so", but for external enthusiasm hides the frustration and sometimes even panic.
Together with the flow of refugees in Germany have started to increase rapidly the cost of social security and its level began with the same speed to decrease. A rating of Merkel among others rushed down, and the minds of the public began to seize very right-wing forces. "Germany at the moment - it is a place where people are not constrained in expressing their own hatred and xenophobia," said the German magazine Der Spiegel.
The German public already accepts arguments in favor of the adoption of refugees from the Middle East, on the contrary - gaining strength the voices of those who believes that "defectors" will be very much, says Gideon Rachman. Only for a day about 10 thousand people are sent to Germany, however, for example, England has agreed to accept 20 thousand Syrian refugees, but for 4 years.
Some voters have concluded that Merkel is "crazy", uncontrolled opening of the borders for migrants. "If the flow of refugees heading to Germany, some time to hold on to the openness of borders, the pressure on the Chancellor, and requirements for retirement will increase," - no doubt expert. Be that as it may, with full confidence we can say at the moment is that the "Golden era" of German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to an end.
