BERLIN – A clear majority of Germans would not want Angela Merkel to be chancellor again, a survey has found.
Some 71% of those questioned do not want the conservative politician, who stepped down following last year’s elections after 16 years as chancellor, back in office, according to a representative online survey conducted by the Civey Institute for the Funke Media Group.
Less than a quarter – or 23% – would like to see Merkel at the helm of Europe’s biggest economy again, the poll found.
However, some 43% of respondents said they think Merkel did a better job than current Chancellor Olaf Scholz, a Social Democrat, while 41% said the opposite is the case.
Civey polled a total of 5,003 citizens on November 24.
