ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of the elections in Germany in September 2013 for Europe, as well as examines the eurozone and European Union (EU) reforms and approach of the country to economics. It talks about eurobonds, referring to bonds issued jointly by eurozone member states, that is said to be one area on which the opinion of German political parties has differed. A brief background of main political parties in Germany, including the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), is offered.
