Angela Merkel draws up battle lines ahead of 2017 election bid

German Chancellor Angela MerkelGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel will outline her battle strategy Tuesday to counter a wave of populism that has consumed key allies abroad, as she launches into campaign mode for next year’s elections. Merkel, who has led Germany for 11 years, last month confirmed she would run for a fourth term but acknowledged that the election would be “more difficult” than any other she has contested. Party faithful from her centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) gathering for a two-day annual congress in the western city of Essen are expected to overwhelmingly re-elect Merkel as party chief, rallying behind her bid to stay in power.
