Angela Merkel has held the post of Chancellor of Germany

Angela Merkel has held the post of Chancellor of Germany. German voters gave conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel a 799px-Angela_Merkel_(2008)second term on general election on Sunday and allowed her to dump her center-left coalition partners in favor of the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP).  Exit-polls showed Merkel’s conservative bloc – the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) – on about 33,5 percent, down from their score of 35.2 percent in 2005.  In this election, FDP rising to just under 15 percent, above their 9.8 percent score of four years ago.

Getting this new mandate in conditions of economic crisis means a great achievement for Angela Merkel. Even if she have to take into account the requirements of governing partner. How will carry this new alliance? Analysts believe that together with the FDP, Chancellor Merkel would be expected to push for tax relief and extend the lifespan of German nuclear plants that are scheduled to be phased out over the next decade. As regards foreign policy is not expected to essential changes. There will be a natural relationship with the EU. And stronger partnerships with Russia and France.

German Social Democrats (SPD) received results from exit polls in silence. The SPD, on about 23 percent, suffered their worst result in the postwar era.

  1. I am curious to see how well Merkel will do over the next few months, in terms of pushing for some of her pro-business objectives. It certainly does seem that she has quite a few loyal followers behind her (thus, she won the election), but there are still those Germans who do not like her policies or ideas for the country during this low-economic point.
    There is an interesting video on all of this at newsy.com. The video highlights main events connected to Merkel’s reelection and shows a few different viewpoints and sources. If you have just a couple of minutes, it’s worth watching and commenting on:
