scenes of the german buddhas talk yesterday its chancellor angela merkel was in effect threatened with open rebellion her conservative blog on the board does talk normally acts as one but in an extraordinary move it held separate meetings on the same issue the bavarian conservatives of the c.s.u. versus the rest the c.s.u. says it can no longer wait to see a change in machall migration policy. again we've made it clear what needs to be done more agents lead to restore order borders we should take the stand turning refugees away from our borders who are already registered in another european country. or. c.s.u. leader host and chancellor merkel had battled over the issue late into the night but no compromise was reached both science agree a european response to migration is needed but says that's taking too long mankell

is still hoping for a deal with other e.u. states at a summit in two weeks time. to me the question of how to tackle this migration issue is a litmus test for the future and cohesion of europe it therefore needs to take every country into consideration the chancellor is putting the focus on beefing up the e.u. sexten all borders in the hope of deterring people from attempting to enter europe at all. wants to allow the austrian approach where x. journal controls don't work national border checks should be reintroduced his party says as interior minister he already has the power to implement that but that might force a confrontation with the chancellor which could threaten the government. as disparate migrants continue to cross the mediterranean the debate about what to do with them has turned into a political showdown in berlin. for more on this d w correspondent thomas sparrow
11:04 am
joins me from the german parliament the bundestag thomas is there and actually realistic chance of biscuits all the end of this government. i wouldn't say just yet if there's something that we've learned from her nearly thirteen years in power is that she can negotiate very well but what we can also say at the same time is that this is definitely a very significant political crisis here in germany and a very significant challenge to anglo merkel's authority and now i'm going to merkel will have to in some way find her priority over european solution at the same time make sure that you can find a solution that satisfies those who prefer a national alternative a national solution to this political crisis it won't be easy for merkel i think no one expects that to be easy for merkel in fact they expect this to be one of the most significant challenges that she has hired as a german chancellor now the interior minister has long been a fierce critic of her migration policies so why is this rebellion brewing now.
11:05 am
well in the first time because there are elections in bavaria coming up in the autumn and that's something that for the c.s.u. for the bavarian conservatives is over the past particularly important but it's also because wholesale hope is now in a position where he believes he can act as interior minister the c.s.u. now holds the interior ministry and as such they believe that they have to actually try and solve this migration or problem wholesale find fact came to the interior ministry or someone as a sort of law and order politician and he sees that also was his responsibility he prefers those national measures instead of the european measures but he has to do also obviously with the elections coming up in the autumn in bavaria thomas as miracles conservatives work through that is just a few a new poll shows that a majority of germans want the government to take a tougher line on migration the poll by research institute in for a test asked
11:06 am
a number of questions about refugees and one very clear answer and overwhelming eighty six percent of respondents said they were in favor of a more efficient system to deport people whose asylum request had been denied. thomas what do you make of this number eighty six percent. well it obviously shows that also among the german population many want a tough line on migration a line that focuses on on deporting those who are not allowed to stay there oh there were other proposals that were asked in the opinion poll for example giving refugees not necessarily money but other type of assistance for example services or making sure that those migrants without documents are not allowed to enter germany those proposals were also met with approval by a majority here in germany so it clearly shows that not only here in the german parliament many want a tougher line on on immigration but also many among among germans many also want
11:07 am
to tougher line so that obviously shows what priorities many would like the government here should have and there are questions now on how this is affecting her popularity merkel's popularity the polls also asking the question how satisfied are you with the german government's performance and a clear majority will see that in a second almost two thirds admitted that they're dissatisfied only about a third of voters said that they're happy with the government's record. on this there's nothing big about that one how damaging is this in the government and specifically to the chancellor. it is obviously damaging for the government the fact that many of you very critically the way the coalition is handling different issues obviously migration being one of them but it's also interesting that that same poll. approval ratings for specific politicians are not going to michael was still the most popular politician in germany so there's a clear difference between politicians are such on the governing coalition and it seems the german people german people are more skeptical about the coalition of
