will have the highlights from that bonus league match. i'm brian thomas a very warm welcome to the show on the macro has promised to remain both chancellor and conservative party leader for another full term she used her first interview since clinching a deal for a new government to quash rumors that she'd step down early to make way for a new generation of leaders many in her party are not satisfied with her we'll talk about that after this report. the german chancellor stepping up to defend to the coalition deal specifically the key foreign and finance ministries going to the social democrats it was the only way to stop the talks collapsing she says. it's unfair to him now as i also find it painful. i would like to have kept the finance
ministry but it's what we decide is politically and in the coalition agreement and the finance minister cannot just do whatever he likes. merkel also addressed the question of staffing within her own party there have been growing calls to begin promoting a younger generation of c.d.u. talent to cabinet level posts. from i know that i naturally have to make sure that we keep in mind not just the over sixty's but also the younger people. my own message to the party conference is that we need to be clear about how we go forward into government and to see to use ministerial line up should be clear in two weeks' time merkel avoided talking about a successor saying she plans to remain as chancellor and party leader until twenty twenty one. do you think you have lost your authority. now in an unfinished so no i don't feel that because of course i do understand that the party will be thinking that i've been the chancellor for twelve years and clearly i can't be
chancellor for another twelve years. on the other hand i had extensive discussions with the party before the election on whether it was right and desirable for me to come pain for another four years and i agree that it was merkel's message to our party is clear i'm still in charge but i'm listening to my critics. well just how much is all america listening to those critics are correspondent kate brady is here to talk about that good morning kate all america is saying that she's going to stay on for the full term but might she in fact exit or oh well of course given the political turmoil that we're saying here in germany at the moment there's nothing to say that she will indeed see through a full term of course if this grand coalition joke are years ahead but as we saw in that interview yesterday evening she really use that chance to show that she still is in charge of the c.d.u. and show her all thora taste try and convince those critics in the party right now
that she has what it takes to lead the party and also lead the country but of course the big question for the c.d.u. that her conservative right now is who is going to be has success so even if we did see one time to make a quick exit to is going to replace or not is a question that is no doubt going to be quite time consuming for the c.d.u. in the coming he is right now they just don't have anyone lined up another looming question has greater or immediacy is what about these two parties but the social democrats and all americans conservatives still have to approve the coalition deal so it's very much still an open process at this point exactly these personnel debates a very much a side issue right now and germany really needs to just focus on form and government now the party which could upset the. grand coalition deal really is the social democrats now and what four hundred sixty thousand party members eligible to vote by march second and will no two days later exactly whether they voted for or
against a grand coalition deal so this deal could even fall through yet ok so on march fourth we could know we should know and it could very much be open for open elections if it fails exactly we could see even snap elections all the other option would be a minority government but that's something that anglo-american on several occasions has already rolled out sorry the different opportunities that are quite slim mark march fourth on your calendars people thanks very much kate brady for that. now to some of the other stories making the news at this hour egypt's army says it's killed twelve isn't as militants in the tain about ninety others after gun battles in the northern sinai the operation was part of a government campaign against insurgents blamed for a string of attacks in the areas or said the latest air strikes destroyed dozens of militant targets. in the u.s. the state of new york has launched
