German Chancellor Angela Merkel will not stand again as leader of her centre-right CDU, a party source told AFP Monday, making way after 18 years for a successor following a series of regional vote defeats.

"She will not stand again for the chairmanship of her party," said the source within the Christian Democratic Union, a day after voters in the Hesse state punished her party in a regional poll.
