Merkel poised to an­nounce bid for fourth term

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel was ex­pected to an­nounce her bid for re-elec­tion yes­ter­day af­ter press time, in a move likely to be wel­comed in many cap­i­tals as a sign of sta­bil­ity fol­low­ing poll tri­umphs for Brexit and Don­ald Trump. Ms Merkel, 62, has gov­erned Europe’s top eco­nomic power, which does not have term lim­its, since 2005, and a fifth full four-year man­date would tie the post-war record set by her men­tor Hel­mut Kohl, who presided over the 1989 fall of the Ber­lin Wall.
