(German version published on 4 February, 2010) At 27 Oktober 2009 the 17th period of the German Bundestag began lead by the parties of CDU/CSU and FDP under Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Political dolefulness parliamentarymade

(German version published on 30 Oktober, 2009) Today Christine Lieberknecht (CDU) has been elected as President of Thürigen but just in the ithird ballot (German).

Misused

3 February, 2009 (23:13) | homeland security | By: Aerar

As it seems, once again a severe theme has been misused (german) in an act of good faith but without expertise to act rashly and uselessly. Or is there more behind it? In best case the Union parties just try to build a leverage for the coalition negotions in a coming coalition with the FDP. […]

Now it happened. While the world of Andrea Ypsilanti still looked well in the morning and the CDU more and more worried (german) about a change of government in Hessen the house of cards she build as option for the coming change collapsed.
