German interior minister Seehofer former Bavarian prime-minister rules Germany and Europe as described on this blog. After he resigned two days ago he got what he wanted from Merkel and he decided not to resign. Another day and his fuss making was analysed by his sister party the CDU and many regional bosses outside Bavaria want him to leave the federal cabinet.
Since the federal government consists of two conservative parties and the social-democrats it is clear that any change in immigration policy depends on all three parties. So today most social-democrats in the provinces do not support the recently approved changes. And many want Seehofer to leave the federal cabinet.
Since a lot of Germans are hard-line refugee defenders it seems as if the summer will be filled with demonstrations against Seehofer. The coming days and weeks will be a nightmare for Seehofer his Bavarian conservative party CSU.
