Some German politics if you are following along.
- German Social Democrat leader Andrea Nahles is to resign her position
- The party performed poorly in recent elections (15.8% of the vote in last week’s European Parliament election, coming in 3rd to Merkel’s conservatives and the Greens. Lost key seats).
- This could prompt questions within the party on supporting Merkel and could thus destabilise the German government.
Something to keep an eye on for the euro, not a positive!
