Habemus Cancellarius

The last few weeks have been quite tense in Germany, facing the prospect of uncertainty in terms of who would succeed Schröder as Bundeskanzler, or if he would retain the seat.

The SPD and the CDU have finally come to an agreement in which Schröder steps down, presumably to retire from politics, and Merkel steps in as new Chancellor. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the majority of the Parliament will be SPD, as well as most of the Cabinet.

What remains is to wonder what will be of Agenda 2010, and what will become of atomic power plants, foreigners, and Germany’s participation in international conflicts herded by George Bush, which are major issues of Merkel and the CDU’s platform for this term.
