German elections and the end of Merkel's era

The German federal elections of September 26, 2021 mark the end of the so-called Merkel era, after 16 years as head of the government. The SPD's victory by only 1.6% over the CDU and the results of several political forces open up the possibility of several multiparty coalitions. In the European Union and in international politics, Germany's role will become increasingly relevant in a transitional context in the international system.

Tunisia's political crisis

On 15 January, during his speech to the Nation, Vladimir Putin announced a constitutional reform that will give Parliament more powers and promote the Council of State of an advisory body to the Constitutional body. Dmitry Medvedev's government immediately resigned and the chief of the Tax Authority, Michail Mishustin, was appointed Prime Minister. The mention, during the speech, to an end of the limitation "maximum of two terms in a row" in the Presidency launched the debate on the political future of the Russian President.

Myanmar's coup d'etat

In the February 1st military coup in Myanmar, the military arrested President Aung San Suu Kyi and several members of the government and parliament, sparking massive protests across the country.
