MUNICH (Reuters) – German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Monday the question of whether he would remain in office after a Sept. 24 national election would be dealt with after the vote.

The 74-year-old veteran member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives told a meeting of tax consultants in Munich that what happens after the election will be dealt with once Germans have voted and said his ministry would be in good shape.
