Germany's Merkel to talk to May on Tuesday - lawmakers

14 March, 2018, 11:54
German lawmakers voted on Wednesday to re-elect Angela Merkel as chancellor for a fourth term that may prove her most challenging yet as she leads a fragile coalition with her standing diminished.
Putting an end to almost six months of political drift in Europe's biggest economy, Angela Merkel has been elected for her fourth term as chancellor by Germany's parliament.
Merkel listed internal security and European cooperation among the new government's priorities, as well as new challenges such as responding to import tariffs announced by U.S. President Donald Trump. "Now full steam ahead for Germany".
After Merkel's reelection she will immediately travel to Schloss Bellevue to receive a letter of appointment by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, before heading back to the Bundestag in order to take the oath of office.
The pressure will be on the new government to immediately get down to business, after months of horse-trading and delayed decision-making. Earlier on Tuesday, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel condemned a nerve agent attack in England on a former spy that the British government has blamed on Russian Federation, and said the perpetrators must be held accountable.
The new "grand coalition" of Germany's biggest parties emerged after Merkel's attempt to forge an alliance with two smaller parties collapsed.
"I am optimistic that we'll manage it", Merkel said.
