Merkel’s best laid plans are falling apart after two political blows

Berlin (CNN)Angela Merkel may have been hoping for a smooth exit to her long tenure as German Chancellor. Instead, she could be in for a rough ride, after suffering two major political blows in the past week.

First, her chosen successor as Germany’s leader, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer — better known as AKK — has plunged in the polls after a series of blunders.
Second, Merkel’s coalition partner, Andrea Nahles of the Social Democrats, resigned after taking a battering in last week’s European elections.
