, you can come but also light-footed, contrary jumped. So how is the comparison between the Gerhard-Schröder-end time, and the Angela-Merkel-twilight. A Chancellor's decision that splits the country and the party, the Erosion of authority in our own warehouse, Govern as to Justify fears of loss in the population of what was, for schröder's term in office, the Agenda 2010, Merkel's policy on refugees in 2015.
At the end of the Era Schröder, it was a state election that decided on the continuation of the Federal government: To the bitter losses of the SPD in North Rhine-Westphalia in 2005, the resolution of the Federal government. The Hesse-choice, this weekend has the potential to be at the NRW-Moment of the great coalition. Especially since nearly three-quarters of voters say that their choice decision, the Federal and the state policy was crucial, as was recently a survey has revealed.

The election in Hesse is mutated to a kind of the Bundestag election, but only seven percent of all eligible voters are able to participate in Germany. A province decides, possibly, about the government future of the entire Republic – to be responsible for the Union and the SPD have with your blatant threats like "no one can say what of the dynamics in each of the parties" or "We will not stay at any cost in the Grand coalition". Actually, the consequence for the Federal government, can mean only, according to Hesse, the vote of all the voters.
