Chancellor Angela Merkel's fourth-term government took almost six months to put together, taking office in March after the centre-left Social Democrats reluctantly agreed to team up with her conservatives again. Such a direct challenge to Merkel would force her to fire Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, a Bavarian who has always been a thorn in her side on migrant policy.

By contrast, Merkel has warned of a resulting domino effect as Germany's neighbors rush to shutter their internal Schengen borders and is calling for a joint European solution to the "refugee crisis" to be reached within the next two weeks. The training obtained nearly 13% of votes in last September elections and entered for first time in Bundestag, where it occupies 92 seats.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who also leads the CSU, may be tempted to use his powers to implement his party's call for more powers to turn away refugees registered in other European Union states. The CSU exists only in Bavaria, and the CDU in Germany's other 15 states.

The respondents refer to appointment that Bavarians have with ballot boxes on October 14 and CSU is played absolute majority, which save a small temporary parensis has held for decades.

Rightwingers in her delicate governing coalition-as well as several northern European countries-remain hostile to France's push for a common eurozone budget, fearing taxpayers could foot the bill for fiscal irresponsibility in southern EU states.

German chancellor Angela Merkel has been one of the most welcoming political leaders in Europe by opening the borders and letting in an estimated one million migrants over the last 3 years and now that kindness is coming back to bite as her own party turn on her which may see the end of her political career as early as this week.

A populist-far right government in place in Italy, as well as the conservative-far right in power in neighbouring Austria, have also taken an uncompromising stance on immigration.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, an anti-migration hardliner, was invited to CSU meetings.

Seehofer and Merkel have long had an awkward relationship.

It is not clear if this was the study the 10 percent figure referred to. CSU leaders insisted that the causes for the drop in support were in Berlin, and that Germany's migration policy was a major factor.

Speaking to dpa on Tuesday, Bavarian governor Markus Soeder (CSU) expressed skepticism that Merkel would succeed in meeting the tight deadline set by the CSU. Seehofer entered Merkel's government as interior minister, promising a "master plan" to tackle migration.

Macron also said Paris and Berlin wanted agreements that would allow European Union member states to reject at their borders asylum seekers already registered elsewhere in the bloc - usually the first port of entry. She has also called for a "national effort" to ensure that rejected asylum-seekers leave Germany.

While Merkel would welcome a reprieve from an immediate crisis in her coalition, she is still under intense pressure to deliver a deal with European Union partners who are deeply divided.

Macron agreed to the need for "a European response to the challenge of migration", saying Europe must have "more capacity" to monitor its external borders but also more "solidarity mechanisms both outside and inside our borders" faced with migrant arrivals.
