Merkel Says She Will Run as ‘Anti-Populist’, Pro-Establishment Candidate

BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 20: German Chancellor and Chairwoman of the German Christian Democrats (CDU) Angela Merkel speaks to the media following meetings of the CDU leadership on November 20, 2016 in Berlin, Germany. Merkel announced she will run for a fourth term in office in federal elections scheduled for next year. If she wins the election not only will she potentially become Germany’s longest-serving post-World War II chancellor but she will also become a crucial global figure outspoken in upholding liberal values of modern democracy in an era when nations in North America and Europe are sliding to the far-right.
