Germany will be harsh with holiday refugees, says Angela Merkel

Infographic What issues matter to German voters

A Emnid opinion poll showed Mrs Merkel's CDU party would win 38% of the vote - 15 points ahead of the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD). While Green party co-leader Cem Oezdemir said the next government must chart a course for ending the combustion-engine era, Ms Merkel and Mr Schulz say diesel vehicles will have to be on the road for years to come. She also raised the prospect of agreeing legal contingents of African migrants who want to study or work in Europe. Although she's drawn thousands to hear her stump speech, schools in Berlin are still on vacation and many if not most Germans have yet to tune in to the campaign.

"Our demands are perfectly clear: the arrested journalists must be released", said Merkel, noting that she would like to be in good relations with Turkey, but the "reality must be taken into account". "For me this isn't boring".

Earlier this year, German officials prevented top politicians, including Erdogan, from addressing Turkish rallies in Germany in the lead-up to an April referendum that handed Erdogan sweeping new powers.

Earlier, Merkel accused one of the AfD's top officials, Alexander Gauland, of racism for recent remarks that Aydan Ozoguz, the government's integration minister, should be "dumped" back in her parent's homeland, Turkey. "You just can't do that".

"There are many areas where people have the feeling that Merkel is lost in reverie", Schulz said, in particular accusing her of using military aircraft at "dirt cheap" prices to fly around the country for her 50 campaign stops in the final six weeks of the election.

In an interview with the Welt am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday, Merkel denied she had made any mistakes with her open-door policy even though the arrival of a million refugees over the last two years from Syria and Iraq opened deep rifts in her conservative party and depressed its support.

"You have to live with it", Merkel said of the protests.

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel warmed to the idea of creating a combined European finance and the forming of a European Monetary Fund.

The statement further said that Germany would also help Cairo to improve conditions of facilities designated for Syrian refugees and other displaced people in Egypt, adding that both countries further agreed to work more closely to mount crackdown on human traffickers, who bring desperate refugees into Europe through perilous Mediterranean routs.

The sanctions were placed by the European Union against Russian Federation for backing separatists in eastern Ukraine and Merkel told reporters Tuesday there's still a situation there where "Ukraine does not have full sovereignty".

"How often would you like to see me?"
