      Our presidency has a two-term limitation. The chancellorship not...

      But Merkel is on her last term (the fourth), however this CSU revolt will play out.

        Did she say she will not run again? I must have missed that. I was hoping she would say it after the last election, but I didn't read or hear it ...

        prizrak - she could run forever, in theory. Germanys chancellor that has stayed in office the longest was H. Kohl (16 years then voted out), if Merkel stays her whole term, she would have been in office for 16 years too. There has been speculations that she may step aside after half her term, but that's just speculations right now.

        And let me add that I am for a term limit of the chancellor in Germany. 3 terms or 12 years should be enough. 16 years (or theoretically longer) is too long IMO. I don't think a 2 term limit (8 years) like the Us- president is long enough for long term stability (2 terms of 5 years, like in France - I could get behind that) - but 16 years is definetly too long.

        And update: Germany still has a running government. They muddelt through (that's how the Brits say it?). I am dissapointed. In the End it was all just hot air.
