BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday her centre-right Christian Democrats (CDU) should not share power with the far-right, anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
"Of course, I also rule this out categorically," Merkel said during a panel discussion after a senior CDU member in the eastern state of Saxony suggested that a coalition with the AfD should not be excluded in next year's regional elections.
