It's quite odd. Despite its clear FDP-stance the NZZ is much more informative and journalistic (analytical) nowadays than any other major news outlet. Sadly, I find less and less reason to keep reading the Tagesanzeiger, it just keeps morphing into a "left Blick" and for-pay 20 minutes.

Re: Do you believe in Merkel?

In Switzerland, the SVP has managed to avoid the sort of conflicts that usually rip apart right-wing populist parties.

Following the usual pattern, the national board of Germany’s anti-immigration Alternative für Deutschland, narrowly voted last Friday to strip party membership from Andreas Kalbitz, a key networker on the rabidly nationalist fringes of the party’s eastern German branches.
The expulsion of Kalbitz has caused a split through the party’s leadership and set eastern against western delegates.

Five years ago, as more and more refugees crossed into Europe, Germany’s chancellor proclaimed, ‘We’ll manage this.’
Critics said it was her great mistake – but she has been proved right
