>> German Chancellor Angela Merkel is set to be re-elected for a fourth term in office. That's according to exit polls, suggesting the country will once again place its trust in the experienced Chancellor and her center-right Christian Democratic-led block. Her CDU party is on track to win 32.5% of votes, making them by far the largest parliamentary group.
But Merkel must now form a two-way coalition, which could take months, as all potential partners are unsure whether they want to share power with her. CDU's closest rivals, the center-left Social Democrats, led by Martin Schulz, slumped to 20%, a new post-war low. The exit poll also showing the right-wing populist alternatives for Germany coming third and collecting 13.5% of the vote, which could give the country its first substantial right-wing parliamentary faction since the Nazis.
