Chancelloress and her Team

.   If Germany elects Angela Merkel Chancelloress, who will become the new Attorney General to succeed Brigitte Zypries? The German newsmedia speculate that this post in the shadow cabinet will fall to Wolfgang Bosbach of the CDU party or possibly Guido Westerwelle of the FDP.



Enhanced International Enforcement
