[Ed. – Doctors were skeptical of the explanation last time that she was dehydrated. This does start to look like a pattern that’s related to the state of her basic health. It’s a long time to the next scheduled election window in 2021.]
GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared unsteady and was shaking uncontrollably today for the second time in just over a week.
She gripped her trembling arms and pursed her lips at a ceremony in Berlin – nine days after footage of her shaking for a whole minute sparked health fears.
Mrs Merkel was shaking again this morning as she stood alongside President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at an indoor event where Germany’s new justice minister was formally appointed.
She seemed to grimace as she clutched her arms, apparently in an effort to hide the shakes.
