Berlin (dpa) - Andrea Nahles, who served as labour minister in the grand coalition government between Merkel‘s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the SPD, was officially released from her duties by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Andrea Nahles, who served as labour minister in the grand coalition government between Merkel‘s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the SPD, was officially released from her duties by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

In her new post as opposition leader, Nahles - who pushed through an impressive amount of legislation as head of the Labour Ministry - will have the privilege of getting the first response to the chancellor in parliamentary debates.

The move comes four days after Merkel‘s conservative bloc reached a historically-low rate of support in an election that is forcing the long-serving chancellor to attempt an untried coalition with the environmentalist Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP).

The SPD has ruled out the option of forming another grand coalition with the CDU. This move has prevented the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has won parliamentary seats for the first time, from becoming the leading opposition party.

"Our country will need a functioning government and a strong and responsible opposition," Steinmeier said at Berlin‘s Bellevue Palace after dismissing Nahles form the government.
