Euro slumps as the crisis of the government coalition worsens in Germany

On Monday, the common currency slipped at the beginning of the trading session right after German Chancellor Angela Merkel got another blow when her interior minister, who told that he was on the verge of resigning because of the country’s migration policy.

Horst Seehofer, Germany’s Interior Minister, who actually backed tightening border controls, told he was geared up towards resigning from his current position and also as chairman of the Christian Social Union, Merkel’s junior partner in her coalition.
