Angela Merkel Elected For Fourth Term As Germany's Chancellor

Angela Merkel Elected For Fourth Term As Germany's Chancellor”

M - President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev congratulated Angela Merkel on being reelected for the fourth term as German chancellor. Germany's parliament earlier approved her re-election by 364 votes to 315.

The parliamentary vote ended months of political turmoil after the September 24, 2017 federal election saw millions of voters desert Merkel's Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party turning instead to parties on the left and right. In what is widely expected to be her last term, Merkel will have to hold together what is potentially her most fragile coalition yet, while also addressing challenges such as a potential Europe-U.S. trade war and seeking agreement with France and others on the future of a fractious European Union.

President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said as he formally appointed Merkel's new Cabinet: "It is good that the time of uncertainty is over". We are shifting to a new system of political administration that has for many decades contributed to the strengthening of democratic institutions, economic development and prosperity in Germany.

Merkel needs the support of a majority of all lawmakers to be re-elected on Wednesday, meaning that she has to win at least 355 votes.
