Armin Laschet, top candidate of the Christian Democratic Union, celebrates after the state election in the western German state of Northrhine-Westphalia in Duesseldorf, Germany, Sunday, May 14, 2017. First exit polls predict significant gains for Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic party. (AP Photo/Michael Probst) BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives won a state election Sunday in their center-left rivals' traditional heartland, a stinging blow to the challenger in September's national vote. The western state of North Rhine-Westphalia is Germany's most populous and has been led by the center-left Social Democrats for all but five years since 1966. It is also the home state of Martin Schulz, the Social Democrat seeking to deny Merkel a fourth term in the Sept. 24 election. Schulz was hoping for a boost after two previous state election defeats sapped his party's momentum. Instead, Merkel's Christian Democratic Union won 33 percent of the vote in the election for the state legislature, with the Social Democrats trailing on 31.2 percent. Social Democrat governor Hannelore Kraft's coalition lost its majority as her junior governing partners, the Greens, took only 6.4 percent. Conservative challenger Armin Laschet, a deputy leader of Merkel's party, was set to replace Kraft. "The CDU has won the heartland of the Social Democrats," said the conservatives' general secretary, Peter Tauber. "This is a difficult day for the Social Democrats, a difficult day for me personally as well," Schulz, who wasn't on the ballot Sunday, told supporters in Berlin. "I come from the state in which we took a really stinging defeat today." But he urged the party to concentrate now on the national election. He said that "we will sharpen our profile further — we have to as well." "We will continue fighting; the result will come on Sept. 24," Schulz said. The Social Democrats' national ratings soared after Schulz, a former European Parliament president, was nominated in January as Merkel's challenger. But defeats in two other state elections since late March punctured the party's euphoria over Schulz's nomination. The Social Democrats' result in Sunday's election, the last before the national vote, was their worst in North Rhine-Westphalia since World War II. In the state's last election in 2012, the Social Democrats beat the CDU by 39.1 percent to 26.3 percent. The pro-business Free Democrats won a strong 12.6 percent of the vote Sunday after a campaign headed by their national leader, Christian Lindner. That gave the party, with which Merkel governed Germany from 2009 to 2013, a strong base for its drive to return to the national parliament in September after it was ejected four years ago. The nationalist Alternative for Germany won 7.4 percent, giving it seats in its 13th state legislature. The opposition Left Party fell just short of the 5 percent needed to win seats. The result gives the CDU and Free Democrats a very slim majority. If they can't agree on a governing alliance, Laschet could opt for a "grand coalition" of the biggest parties with the Social Democrats. A "grand coalition" would mirror Merkel's national government, in which the Social Democrats are the junior partners. After a blaze of publicity earlier this year, Schulz — who chose not to join the government when he returned to Germany in January — has struggled to maintain a high profile. He has focused on addressing perceived economic injustices, but critics have accused him of providing too little detail of his aims. Kraft told ARD television she had "asked Martin Schulz to let national politics wait until the election was over." Asked whether that was smart, she replied: "I said I would take responsibility for that, and I'm doing that this evening." She resigned as her party's regional leader. Merkel's conservatives sought to portray Kraft's government as slack on security, and also assailed what they said is regional authorities' poor handling of education and infrastructure projects. The region of 17.9 million, nearly a quarter of Germany's population, includes Cologne, Duesseldorf and the Ruhr industrial area. Merkel's party seemed keen not to appear too euphoric, insisting that regional issues played the key role. Asked about Germany's government after September her chief of staff, Peter Altmaier, said that "we always have to keep a cool head ... we shouldn't talk about coalitions before the harvest is in." National polls show the Social Democrats trailing Merkel's conservatives by up to 10 points after drawing level earlier this year.

BERLIN & PARIS & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.), and Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) have agreed on a strategic partnership around their common goal to develop cycling in Germany. As part of the partnership, AEG will work closely with A.S.O. on its cycling business in the German market, which includes the license to launch a new Deutschland Tour (Tour of Germany) in August 2018, which A.S.O. recently obtained from the German Cycling Federation, and the annual Eschborn-Frankfurt cycling classic, the 56th edition of which took place, as part of the World Tour for the first time, on May 1, 2017. The joint announcement was made today by representatives of A.S.O. and AEG following the conclusion of Stage 2 of the Amgen Tour of California which is owned by AEG and organized in partnership with A.S.O. As part of the comprehensive partnership between the global sports organizations, AEG will lead the sponsorship sales process for both the Eschborn-Frankfurt cycling classic and the Deutschland Tour (Tour of Germany), an innovative concept which is designed as a bike festival that bridges the gap between professional and everyday cycling. Yann Le Moënner, Managing Director of A.S.O.: “Our strategic partnership with AEG underlines how committed we are to the German market. The Grand Départ 2017 in Düsseldorf, the just renewed partnership with ARD on broadcasting the Tour de France, the addition of the Eschborn-Frankfurt classic to the family of A.S.O. races and the new Deutschland Tour are all for themselves significant milestones to support the growth of cycling in Germany. We are excited to join forces with AEG, who will be a strong partner to achieve this vision.” With this partnership, two leading companies in sports business and event organization are joining forces in Germany: A.S.O. as one of the leading global sports organizers with 270 days of competition in 20 countries and AEG as the world's leading sports and entertainment company who entertains more than 100 million people annually. While A.S.O.’s leadership ensures world-class cycling expertise and organizing power in non-stadium sports, AEG provides extensive expertise in marketing, entertainment, sales, hospitality and event presentation. It’s a continuation of a successful partnership which began at the Amgen Tour of California, North America’s most popular and prestigious cycling stage race which was founded in 2006. A.S.O. has been responsible for the TV production and distribution of the AEG-owned cycling race since 2009 and beginning in 2016, A.S.O. assumed management of race operations. Steven A. Cohen, Chief Strategic Officer, AEG: “The German market has been core to AEG’s worldwide portfolio of sports, entertainment and real estate properties for more than a decade and today’s announcement further builds on our collection of assets in Germany. Partnering with A.S.O., the global leaders in cycling and numerous other major international competitions, will bring together two organizations with a shared vision and complementary assets and resources that will result in two outstanding and unique events for Germany and cycling fans globally.” Preparations for the Deutschland Tour, under the marketing campaign “Deutschland. Deine Tour.”, are well underway: the fan participation on the collaborative platform deutschlanddeinetour.de produced an exceptional pool of ideas, the first “Tour Makers” have been announced and details of the route of the race’s first edition are becoming more concrete. Amaury Sport Organisation is a company that owns, designs and organizes top international sporting events. Specialized in the ‘non-stadia’ events, it has in-house knowledge of professions linked to organization, media and sales of sporting events. A.S.O. organizes 270 days of competition per year, with 100 events in more than 20 countries.

German leader Angela Merkel was right to confront Donald Trump over the need to tackle climate change, her spokesman has said. A day after she had suggested that Germany and Europe could no longer rely on the US under the leadership of Mr Trump, there was a doubling down on the German Chancellor’s comments. Her spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said the Chancellor remained committed to strong trans-Atlantic relations, but her suggestion after meetings with Mr Trump, that Europe can no longer entirely rely on the US, “speaks for itself”. “[US-German relations] are a strong pillar of our foreign and security policy, and Germany will continue working to strengthen these relations,” said Mr Seibert. “Precisely because they are so important, it’s right to name differences honestly.” Last week, Mr Trump was pressed by leaders of the G7 to keep the US in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, an accord agreeing to cut carbon dioxide emissions that Barack Obama signed his name to. The agreement involves almost 200 countries, and experts say it is essential if the planet is to have any chance of tackling catastrophic climate change. On the election trail, Mr Trump called climate change science a hoax, and suggested he would pull out of the agreement, as he believed it was bad for business. After Mr Trump returned to Washington, it was reported that he had decided to withdraw the US, despite the protestations of Europe. Speaking over the weekend at an event in Bavaria, Ms Merkel had stressed the need for friendly relations with the US, Britain and Russia, but added: “We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands.” Ms Merkel said the traditional western alliance was threatened by the new US presidency and Brexit, and “the times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days”. The Associated Press said Germany has also bristled at criticism from Mr Trump over Nato spending and the country’s large trade surplus. Ms Merkel is looking ahead to elections in September, when she is seeking her fourth term. Her main challenger, the Social Democrat’s chancellor candidate Martin Schulz, was even more outspoken in his comments about the G7 and Nato meetings last week, saying the summits made clear Mr Trump was a “President of the United States of America who wants to humiliate others, who presents himself like an authoritarian ruler”. “Europe is the answer, and stronger cooperation between the European countries at all levels is the answer to Donald Trump,” Mr Schulz said on ARD public television. “And above all else we must not submit to Trump’s arms-race logic.” Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Mr Trump’s actions had “weakened” the West, and his “short-sighted” policies had hurt the interests of the EU.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel attends the weekly cabinet meeting at the Chancellery in Berlin, Germany, February 22, 2017. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch - BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Social Democrats have overtaken Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives in an opinion poll by Infratest dimap for the first time since October 2006, with seven months to go before a federal election. The survey for German broadcaster ARD put the SPD, which has gained strength since nominating former European Parliament President Martin Schulz as its candidate, on 32 percent while Merkel's conservative bloc was on 31 percent. The SPD gained 4 percentage points compared with the same poll published on Feb. 2 while the "Union" made up of Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and their Bavarian allies, the Christian Social Union (CSU), lost 3 percentage points. The reinvigorated SPD has shaken up opinion polls in recent weeks after lagging Merkel's conservatives for years. The last time the SPD won an election was in 2002, under Gerhard Schroeder. The SPD has ruled with Merkel's conservatives in a "grand coalition" since 2013 but Schulz has been in Brussels for most of this legislative period. Since returning to Germany he has campaigned against the chancellor's policies as an outsider. The poll showed the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) on 11 percent, the Greens on 8 percent and the far-left Linke on 7 percent. The pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) were on 6 percent. That means both the AfD and FDP would cross the 5-percent threshold needed to enter parliament - a development that will complicate coalition arithmetic. The poll of 1,047 people was carried out from Feb. 20 to 22.

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble denied on Sunday that he had said Greece would have to leave the euro zone if it failed to implement economic reforms. Schaeuble said in an ARD television interview that Greece would not have problems if it implemented agreed reforms, but would if it fails to carry these out. "I never made any ('Grexit') threats," Schaeuble told ARD's Bericht aus Berlin program just before the network played recent comments in which he said Greece was "not yet over the hill" and the "pressure needed to stay on" Greece or it "couldn't stay in the currency union". Schaeuble said he was giving Greece the same message that it has received throughout its crisis from institutions such as the International Monetary Fund. "If Greece carries out the reforms, there won't be any problems. If they don't, then there will be problems." Schaeuble added: "I'm confident. Greece is on the right path." Schaeuble also said he expects the IMF to participate in a third bailout package for Greece after German magazine Der Spiegel said the Fund would contribute up to 5 billion euros ($5.3 billion). The IMF declined to comment. "I assume it will," Schaeuble said when asked about the IMF's participation. He noted the IMF had said in 2015 it would participate if Greece fulfils its reform targets. "I assume that can be achieved in the coming weeks." It remains unclear whether the Fund will be involved in the program, and this is likely to be one of the main talking points when Chancellor Angela Merkel and IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde meet on Wednesday. Germany's government, gearing up for what is forecast to be a tight national election in September, opposes debt relief for Greece as sought by the IMF. Still, Berlin says the current program can only continue if the Fund joins in. "European law does not allow (national) debt relief," Schaeuble told ARD ahead of a meeting in Brussels on Monday with euro zone finance ministers. "Greece has to become more competitive. That's the what the program is for." A spokeswoman for Schaeuble had said on Friday that the German government has always considered IMF participation to be essential in Greece's third aid-for-reforms package. The Fund has insisted on debt relief and precautionary fiscal measures to ensure that Athens can meet its fiscal targets before it will consider participating in the bailout. Without new policies, the IMF believes Greece can only meet a primary fiscal surplus target of 1.5 pct of gross domestic product by 2018.
