Angela Merkel sworn in for fourth term as German Chancellor

Long term chancellor Angela Merkel has been reelected by the parliament for a 4th term as the chancellor of Germany, CNN reports.

364 of 709 lawmakers voted to have Merkel reelected, against 315 voting against and 9 abstentions.

Merkel said the words, “I accept the vote,” and is expected to be sworn in on Wednesday.

The election is following a 6-month stretch of post-election paralysis.

Her election is a result of the renewed alliance between Merkel’s CDU/CSU and the SPD, which its former leader, Martin Schulz, had ruled out.

Merkel’s fourth time is expected to be her last, and will be formally appointed by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier before taking the oath of office at 1100 GMT.
