Leading German Politician Calls for Greek Eurozone Exit

Alexander Dobrindt

A top official from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Bavarian sister party called Sunday for debt-mired Greece to exit the eurozone, as Germany’s leader fights to keep her government on message during the crisis.
“I think it is a solution, if you want to bring Greece back to stable competitiveness, that they do so outside the eurozone,” Alexander Dobrindt, general secretary of the CSU party, told German radio.
He added that if Greece failed to convince an international team of auditors of its reform efforts to secure more aid, then the EU’s rescue fund, the EFSF, “should also have the right to organise the exit.”
The comments are likely to go down badly with Chancellor Merkel who previously warned politicians to “weigh their words carefully” when speaking about the crisis, conscious of how nervous the financial markets are.
