And some general remarks here:
"The last feature that slightly differentiates the German political parties is the will to spread German best practices on the European level. Although left parties accused Chancellor Merkel for aiming to nationalize the EU, all parties mention that they want German practices to be enacted on the EU level; e.g. federal structure of decision making, social-market economy, currency stability (such as the Deutschmark had before the advent of the Euro). The strength of this perception varies from low (Die Linke) to very evident (CDU; SPD). In spite of the above differences, the perception of national identity issues reflects a high level of consensus within society." More avalible here:
