With less than two days left before Germany’s general election, Chancellor Angela Merkel called on voters to support her.
In televised comments, Merkel said: “The stronger the mandate for me, the better I can create policies for Germany and represent our interests in Europe and also the world. I like my job and I’m asking you to vote for the CDU.”
Merkel’s rival, Peer Steinbruck of the SPD, called out to undecided voters, saying: “Some people spend time with thinking about the question of whether they should vote or if they should punish the parties. My key plea is: go out and vote on Sunday.”
