Speaking on BBC World at One, A German politician claimed clashes between Angela Merkel and German interior minister Horst Seehofer could result in a “new political situation” in Germany by the end of next week.
The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician said it was still unclear in Berlin what the essence of the disagreement between the Chancellor and Mr Seehofer was and that other members of the coalition had been left “in the blue”.
German MP Mr Kai Whittaker said: “We are in a serious situation because the question of the migration crisis evolved into a power question. “The question is who is leading the Government? Is it Angela Merkel or is it Horst Seehofer? “Everybody seems to be standing firm and that’s the problem.”
Mr. Seehofer, of the Christian Social Union (CSU), has often voiced his hostility towards Mrs. Merkel’s open border policy, which brought more than a million refugees in the country in 2015.
He pushed for police forces to have the power to turn away undocumented migrants at the border if they are already registered in another European Union country.
But Mrs. Merkel opposes to such measure and has held emergency talks with members of her party to look for support.
The situation in Berlin is still unclear, we are going to see how the political climate is on Monday in Germanstan.
