Merkel MPs demand migrant crackdown

Merkel MPs demand migrant crackdown, by David Charter.

Angela Merkel has come under pressure from her MPs to revert to the conservative “core brand” to win back voters who defected to the far right, increasing the difficulty of forming a coalition with the left-wing Greens. …

Some of Mrs Merkel’s MPs blame her generous refugee policies for the rise of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD), which took 94 seats with more than 12 per cent of the vote, and want to woo back the AfD’s 5.9 million voters.
