Merkel holds off calling for quick bailout ruling
Germany's Merkel holds off calling for quick court ruling on euro bailout pact
By The Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) German Chancellor Angela Merkel has refrained from pressing the country's top court to rule swiftly on Europe's bailout pact.

Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble last week urged Germany's Federal Constitutional Court not to delay a new permanent European bailout fund and budget discipline pact.

Schaeuble warned that any postponement to the country signing up to the measures could lead to market turmoil.

Parliament endorsed the treaties June 29, but President Joachim Gauck has held off signing them into law after complaints were filed with the court.

Merkel told German television ZDF Sunday that "the constitutional judges will take the time they believe they need."

She added that "it's not up to me to tell the Constitutional Court what to do. The Constitutional Court itself knows what it needs to do."
