Angela Merkel Has been voted in as Germany’s chancellor for the fourth time, almost six months since the national election, bringing to an end the longest power hiatus in the country’s post-war story.

She received 364 out of 709 votes in the first round of voting in parliament, 11 more than required to gain an absolute majority, but also 35 fewer than if all the members of her next governing coalition had cast their ballot in her favour.
