Germany: Merkel secures 4th term in power

Pennews

Angela Merkel has secured her fourth term in power as Chancellor of Germany after country's Social Democratic Party (SPD) agreed to form another “grand coalition” government with the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), a report of The Guardian has said.

The SPD announcement ends almost six months of uncertainty in German politics, the longest the country has been without a government in its postwar history and puts Europe’s largest economy in a position to answer the challenges for EU reform laid down by the French president, Emmanuel Macron.

Congratulating the SPD for its “clear result”, Merkel said she was looking forward to “further cooperation for the good of our country,” according to a tweet attributed to her on her CDU party’s account. Macron’s office welcomed the decision, saying “this is good news for Europe.”
