German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats party has elected its new leader on Saturday (January 16). This put centrist Armin Laschet in pole position to succeed Merkel as the country's chief. Laschet, the premier of the country's most populous state, beat arch-conservative rival Freidrich Merz in a ballot of CDU party delegates. In his victory speech, Laschet urged democratic forces to rally against a tide of extremism that had swept through Western nations along with the coronavirus pandemic. Merkel, Europe's predominant politician and a consistent winner with German voters since taking office in 2005, has said she will not run for chancellor again. Since she stepped down as CDU leader in Dec. 2018, the party has struggled to find a suitable successor. Merkel said last year that Laschet, had quote "the tools" to run for chancellor, the closest she has come to endorsing anyone. But even as leader, Laschet is not guaranteed a run at the chancellorship, as the party could yet nominate someone else.

Ministers are being urged to wait before giving scarce coronavirus jabs to people who have just recovered from the virus because they are immune for at least five months. A major study from Public Health England found last week that people who had caught coronavirus could be immune for at least five months. That would mean that many people who have recovered from coronavirus could be immune until the summer when far more vaccine doses are likely to be available. However, despite this, ministers told Parliament last week that vaccinations for people who have had Covid-19 should only be deferred for at least four weeks after the onset of symptoms. Health minister Nadhim Zahawi told MPs: "The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation are the independent experts who advise the Government on which vaccines the United Kingdom should use and provide advice on prioritisation at a population level. "Clinical decisions will be made for those who have suffered from a Covid-19 infection and it is likely that vaccination should be deferred until clinical recovery and at least four weeks after onset of symptoms."

Borussia Dortmund had to come from behind to rescue a 1-1 home draw against struggling Mainz 05 on Saturday that kept them in fourth place in the title race, four points off the top. Dortmund, who missed a late penalty, did everything right in the first half with close to 70 percent possession and 11 shots on goal, but they wasted a slew of chances and Jude Bellingham also hit the woodwork. Mainz struck with their first chance after the break as Levin Oztunali picked up the ball in midfield, charged towards the Dortmund goal, beat one defender and then released an unstoppable left-footed missile from 25 metres out.
