Merkel to be sworn in for fourth term along with new cabinet

Berlin (dpa) - Angela Merkel was set to be elected chancellor for the fourth time by Germany‘s lower house of parliament, the Bundestag, on Wednesday, and sworn into office along with her cabinet.

Merkel has struggled to form a new government since inconclusive election results in September. At first, the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) refused to join her conservative bloc in government, and then talks with the liberals and Greens collapsed.

A volte-face by former SPD leader Martin Schulz led to a hard-fought 177-page coalition agreement in February. Two-thirds of SPD members finally approved the agreement just under two weeks ago, paving the way for a new grand coalition government under Merkel‘s leadership.

The three parties in the grand coalition - the SPD, Merkel‘s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its allied Christian Social Union (CSU) - have governed Germany since 2013.

"A great amount of work lies before us," Merkel said at a press conference on Monday in Berlin ahead of the formal signing ceremony for the new deal. "I am optimistic that it will be a success."

It is expected that this will be Merkel‘s last term in office.
