Merkel won't run again for parliament, take up EU post - sources

Chancellor Angela Merkel will not stand again for a seat in the German parliament after her current mandate ends, nor will she take up a European Union post in Brussels.

Angela Merkel has told members of her Christian Democrats (CDU) she wanted to serve her full term as German chancellor until 2021, several people told Reuters on Monday.

Merkel also said she would not seek reelection as chancellor or as a conservative lawmaker in the Bundestag parliament after her term ends, party sources said.
