Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.

Thuringia state premier Kemmerich quits, 'effective immediately'
Three days after his shock election, Thuringia Premier Thomas Kemmerich announced Saturday he was quitting his short-lived post with "immediate effect."

Kemmerich, of the business-friendly Free Democrats (FDP), one of Germany's smaller political parties, was elected to the position on Wednesday after being backed by the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and regional representatives from Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) party.

All monetary allowances resulting from his election would be returned to Thuringia's state treasury, Kemmerich added.

Article 75 of Thuringia's state constitution stipulates that at any time any government member can declare his or her resignation. The premier, however, is obligated to continue in a caretaker capacity until a successor takes up office.
