Sitting on an Ikea sofa or on the banks of a lake: This is how Germany imagines for the former Chancellor Merkel

Angela Merkel passed today from Chancellor into functions A and former German Chancellor, after 16 years in power and wrapped in multiple speculations about how his retirement will be, if on a sofa of the IKEA furniture chain or shores of the city lake where he grew up , In Templin (East).

"At the end at home" is the slogan of the IKEA ad, where a double of the policy appears sitting and with one of its characteristic jackets in an armchair - "Strandmon" -. She is in the room of an imaginary house, which could be the floor before the Pergamon Museum where she has the private home of her next to her husband, the scientist Joachim Sauer.

The advertisement of the Swedish chain is an advertising idea. The sensationalist daily "Bild" presents it under the holder "Sleeping, finally", with semi-closed eyes and lying on a tree, with her lake in the background.

This means estimates that Merkel, 67, will dedicate his time to some of his recognized hobbies, such as the faithful visitor of Bayreuth's opera festivals, in Bavaria, and Salzburg, Austria. She also imagines cooking potato soup, from which she adds a recipe, or visiting some of the cities whose universities gave him the title of "Doctor Honoris Causa".

He considers, finally, that he could decide to accompany his husband, expert in quantum physics who currently exercises as a guest professor in the Italian city of Turin.

"Bild", which in the last stage of Merkel in power has been rather than critical towards his management, especially after the 2015 migratory crisis, adventure that the retirement of the policy could be at 16,000 euros per month.

Apart from these assumptions, Merkel has held since he announced his gradual retirement from politics-in 2018- that he will not exercise any new public office. She will keep, however, an office as a chance of former chancellor at the downtown Avenue under Los Tilas, close to the Brandenburg Gate. It is the same office she occupied after the withdrawal of her Helmut Kohl (1982-1998).

Merkel went through the position of the Social Democrat Olaf Scholz, after 5,860 days in power -10 less than those who were Kohl, absolute record of permanence of the Federal Republic of Germany (Rfa) -.

He attended the investiture of his successor from the guest gallery of Parliament (Bundestag), because he is no longer a deputy in the current legislature. She received from there a long ovation of the deputies of almost the entire parliamentary spectrum, with the exception of the Alternative Ultraderechist for Germany (AFD).

After swearing his position, Scholz went to the chancellery, where Merkel already greeted him as "New Federal Chancellor". The successor of him thanked him for joint work and good cooperation, especially in this past legislature, in which he was vicecanciller and finance minister of the last great coalition of Merkel.
