Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, to seek fourth term

Angela Merkel, Germany's center-right leader, announced on Sunday that she will seek a fourth term as chancellor in the next general elections. As the country's first chancellor, Merkel has been in office since 2005. But she expects the next election will be the toughest campaign to date, being challenged by the populist right-wing AfD party, and the CDU's defeat in several states in September due to her open-door policy for migrants. The general elections are expected next year.
