The leader of the German Free democratic party (FDP) Christian Lindner said that the term of office of Chancellor should be limited to eight or ten years.

The Chairman of the government of Germany the German Bundestag is elected for a term of four years. Angela Merkel has held the post of Chancellor after the next parliamentary elections last year for the fourth time.

«I am in favour of limiting the term of office of the head of government in Germany eight or ten years. Any other head of government would be more progressive than a lady (angel edition) Merkel. This is due to the length of the period,» said Lindner in an interview with the newspaper Bild am Sonntag.

The politician is sure that in the 13th year of service Merkel has already «politically exhausted». «In this position and with the Chancellor of Germany, needed to lift could not be achieved», he concluded.
