Merkel is facing a rebellion from her hardline Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who demands that German border police be given the right to turn back migrants without identity papers or who are already registered elsewhere in the European Union.

But the emotional immigration issue has opened a rift between them that is deepening as the CSU faces an electoral threat by the AfD in a state poll in October.
The CDU and the Social Democrats (SPD) alone lack a majority in parliament. However, German media report it has been delayed because of on-going disagreement with Chancellor Merkel.

Amid the chaos, the SPD's Finance Minister Olaf Scholz called for cool heads to prevail, tweeting that "the task of governing our country is serious and not an episode of Game of Thrones".
For the chancellor, the only sustainable solution would be a Europe-wide agreement - a point she will likely push when she meets later Tuesday with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, whose country would be hardest hit if Germany were to close its doors.
