Scholz risks leaving his position due to the energy crisis in Germany

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz may lose his post due to the worsening energy crisis in the country.

“A real drama has been played out with the search for those responsible for making the catastrophic decision ten years ago to abandon nuclear energy, because of which Germany became completely dependent on Russia,” experts said.


According to them, two-thirds of voters condemn Scholz for his failure to ensure the country’s energy security.


Earlier, the head of the opposition German party CDU, Friedrich Merz, expressed concern that fuel shortages in Europe could provoke a “battle over gas distribution” among the EU countries.


German Vice-Chancellor, Economics and Climate Protection Minister Robert Habeck said that Germany could face rolling power outages to utilities due to gas shortages.


The chairman of the Association of German Trade Unions (DGB), Jasmine Fahimi, warned of a possible increase in unemployment in Germany against the backdrop of a reduction in gas supplies from Russia, as this will provoke a financial crisis in many companies in Germany.
