On Wednesday she will hand over the helm of the chancellery to @OlafScholz

Angela #Merkel's final wish as chancellor:

"I would like to encourage you to continue to see the world through the eyes of others. In other words, to also perceive the sometimes uncomfortable and contradictory perspectives of the other person and to work to balance interests"

That will be Angela Merkel鈥檚 last day as chancellor, leaving office after 16 years.
On Thursday evening, an elaborate military ceremony will bid Chancellor Angela Merkel farewell.

One song chosen by Merkel for the occasion, by punk legend Nina Hagen, has surprised many.

Days after the new #COVID19 variant #omicron was identified in South Africa, ever more countries are moving to close their borders to stem its spread.鈥
In reply to @Thomas_Sparrow
That is always a good question, yes. The 1.7 mio from the EU seem like a rather minuscule amount, though, compared to the likely future operating cost of this project. In that sense, I鈥檇 rather see it as a subsidy to get things off the ground.
Replying to @wblau
Thanks. I imagine this newsroom would also endeavour to have clear guidelines so as to make sure that it can report independently and critically on EU affairs.
This is big. Slowly but surely, we鈥檒l create an EU news media sphere. It鈥檚 time.
Replying to @wblau
A question I've been asked: would/could journalistic independence be compromised if you consider that this newsroom would be reporting on a source (the EU) that is financing the project?

On the day that Germany's new coalition agreement was presented, Angela Merkel chaired a cabinet meeting for probably the last time

The 161st cabinet meeting since 2018, according to @RegSprecher

And nearly exactly 16 years after Merkel became chancellor (22 November 2005)

In reply to @ignaciorubio
Personalmente me llama la atenci贸n que el SPD haya dejado escapar exteriores, el cual suele ser un ministerio muy preciado. Es un buen movimiento de Scholz para balancear internamente el empuje de los liberales.
Replying to @ignaciorubio
Ignacio, tambi茅n puede deberse a que normalmente el partido que pone al canciller no pone al ministro de exteriores. Ese puesto tiende a ir al partido que qued贸 de segundo.
馃巵Angela Merkel's farewell present by her ministers after what probably was her final cabinet meeting: a tree to plant in her garden and a message to "seize the day" (carpe diem).

In reply to @Thomas_Sparrow
Ese es seguramente el an谩lisis que hagan los Verdes (y ella misma), pero a煤n as铆 creo que la jugada que le hacen no es muy edificante.
Replying to @EmilioOrdiz
Igual depende tambi茅n de otro punto. Los Verdes, seg煤n entiendo, tienen el derecho a decidir qui茅n ser谩 vicecanciller. Si se lo dan a ella ser铆a incluso mejor que lo obtenido por Habeck.
In reply to @EmilioOrdiz
Depende de c贸mo se le mire. Si bien los hilos de la pol铆tica exterior se han manejado en la canciller铆a, el ministerio de exteriores no es cualquier puesto. Y es uno que puede ser bueno para ella dado su perfil.
A few key facts of Germany's new coalition agreement:
