Merkel suffers third shaking bout in a month

Featured Posts

German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared to shake uncontrollably for the third time in a month during Finnish Prime Minister Antti Rinne's visit to Berlin Wednesday.

Footage shows Merkel trembling through the German national anthem during a welcome ceremony for her Finnish counterpart.

Merkel later claimed to be "fine," according to Sky News. "People don't need to worry about me," she said, in a news conference after the event.

It is the third time in a month the German chancellor has been spotted trembling in public, after shaking through a reception for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on June 18 and a meeting with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on June 27.

Her office has not commented on the state of her health.

Merkel is due to stand down as German chancellor at the end of her current term in 2021.

It’s so obvious she probably has Parkinson’s disease or something similar.

She’s definitely unwell. Why won’t she admit it, though? Will that effect some future election or somthin?

If she steps down news elections are given and the current parties in the government (CDU and SPD) would lose a lot votes, that’s why both parties, especially CDU, don’t want new elections because they probably won’t be biggest party anymore and the next the chancellor of Germany wouldn’t be from CDU.

This is definitely not normal.

 

But it's really hard to say what might be causing it from the footage.

 

I noticed she only shakes when she's quiet, and the tremor quickly goes away once she starts walking. But she walks completely fine, no slow walking, the tremor is not really continuous... Parkinson's looks very, very unlikely.

 

It's most likely a natural aggravation of a normal tremor, or anxiety (you know when you start thinking too much about not doing one thing, and that makes you do it? Who knows, she probably got a little nervous after the first shaking and now everytime she's in a similar situation she can't control it), or a metabolic disease. Nothing from the videos can make us guess it's neurological.

OMG I hope she's fine. I was already a bit worried after the second time. I don't want her to step down before 2021 :nooo: the elections would be a grand mess :bradley:

No it wouldn’t. The Green Party would become the strongest party. 

The right party would only be the fourth largest party

Yeah true but the greens won't have a clear majority and will need a coalition, not sure how that's going to work out. Most possible would be the Jamaica coalition, which may be the better option. 

Oh and I'm not worried about the right Afd. :lolga:
