Lindner, whose party believes in tax cuts and legalising cannabis, said he was unsure what the Social Democrat's chancellor candidate, Olaf Scholz, stood for.
Scholz's SPD saw its lead over Merkel's conservatives narrow in a poll published on Tuesday, pointing to a tightening race just five days before the election.
