Merkel Says Media is Bluffing

by AP posted Apr 15 2013 8:11AM
  BERLIN (AP) - Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman says there's nothing to a media report that the German leader is thinking of stepping down before she reaches age 61 in 2015.
 
     Current polls indicate Merkel is likely to return as chancellor after September elections, and retiring in 2015 would mean not serving a full four-year term.
 
     The top-selling and influential Bild newspaper posed the question Monday of whether Merkel may be considering retirement then, quoting from an analysis done by one of their reporters in his new book.
 
     But Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters that she was not considering such a move.
 
     He says "it is self-evident that the chancellor is running in the elections for a full legislative period."
