Merkel sits through anthems after shaking spells

Angela Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel reacts during a news conference with Denmark's Prime Minister Mette Frederiksenat the Chancellery in Berlin, Germany, July 11, 2019.

On June 18, Chancellor Merkel also desperately attempted to stop herself from shaking for at least a minute as she stood next to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

"I am fine", Merkel told a news conference after Wednesday's meeting with Rinne.

"I said recently that I am in a phase of processing the last military honors with President Zelenskiy".

"I believe that just as it happened one day, so it will disappear".

It said she should state clearly whether she has undergone medical tests to get to the bottom of the mysterious trembling spells.

On Wednesday, she gave no details of any medical advice or treatment she has been given.

Merkel, who has been leader of Europe's biggest economy for nearly 14 years, has always enjoyed relatively robust health.

German media continued to speculate over possible causes of the shaking, which ranged from low sugar levels to early-stage diabetes and neurological problems such as Alzheimer's.

Yet, after nine races, Haas are ninth in the constructors' championship and are struggling to live up to those ambitions. Following the news, a source told Autosport the following statement. "I don't want to put anybody in a hard situation".

Before getting a respite from public scrutiny during her summer vacation, she'll have to navigate several public appearances, including a military parade in Paris this weekend for Bastille Day.

"Of course Merkel knows that the more serious the reason for her shaking, the more pressure there'd be on her to step down", Oskar Niedermayer, a political scientist at the Free University in Berlin, said after Wednesday's incident.

"And secondly, you can also assume that as a person, I have a strong personal interest in being in good health and that I take care of my health", she added. The second time the German chancellor was seen trembling while attending an appointment ceremony for Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht on June 27.

"Merkel is the guarantee of stability and many people want her to serve a full term", he told Reuters.

Merkel made a decision to seek a fourth term in office only after long reflection, and said in November 2016 she was seeking to stay on "if health allows".

Frequently called the European Union's most influential leader and the most powerful woman in the world, Merkel has said she will leave politics at the end of her term, in 2021.

Were Merkel to be incapacitated, Steinmeier would appoint a cabinet minister as acting chancellor until parliament elects a new chancellor.

Opposition by Germany's Social Democrats, junior partners in the ruling coalition, to the nomination of conservative Ursula von der Leyen as European Commission chief is making governing hard, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday.
