    Time Online: Mr. Falter, is Angela Merkel to blame for aging of her party?

    Jürgen W. Falter: The CDU has clearly failed to promote young people consistently. The party and thus Angela Merkel have failed strategically. On or hand: enforcing young people in an older party is not easy eir.

    Time Online: It is now being discussed that CDU must rejuvenate and elect more junior staff in top offices. Who besides CDU Presidium member Jens Spahn would still have opportunities?

    Andy W. Falter

    (69) is a political scientist and party researcher at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.

    Moth: Paul Ziemiak, chairman of Young Union, is part of this. Also party vice Julia Klöckner, a mid-forties. Within top she is one of younger. Merkel is almost 20 years older than her. Or younger forces barely fall into one anor. Daniel Günr, 44-year-old prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, would still be one who could move on soon.

    Time Online: Annegret Kramp-Cart-maker, prime minister in Saarland?

    Moth: Strictly speaking, it is no longer one of younger. It would also have to emerge from shadow of province and obtain a federal political profile. In North Rhine-Westphalia re are circles in which more people live than in country that Kramp-cart-maker rules.

    Time Online: After Bundestag election of 2013, hawked, Merkel was going to resign after two years. After election last year, re were similar voices. Merkel herself now says that she wants to rule for anor four years.

    Moth: Merkel's backing with electorate has fallen. Many voters have realized that y have taken many lonely decisions over Parliament: phasing-out of nuclear power, open-mindedness of borders in refugee crisis, euro rescue and de facto abolition of compulsory military service. It has driven CDU re, where many union voters did not want it: in midst of political spectrum, away from former center-right positions. The really conservatives in ir party has made m dispowered or muzzled.

    Time Online: And did it harm you within party?
