German President Joachim Gauck is scheduled to make a statement on Monday at his residence, Berlin's Bellevue Palace, his office said.
The 76-year-old is expected to comment on whether he will run for a second term in 2017.
Germany's most popular newspaper Bild recently reported that after much deliberation, Gauck had decided not to run, citing health problems and his age as reasons. This report was not confirmed by his official press department.
