German Chancellor Angela Merkel set for fourth term as deal finally struck after four months



German Chancellor Angela Merkel says a coalition deal struck to end four months of limbo will be the basis of a "good and stable government".
 
An "in principle" deal was agreed on Wednesday between Mrs Merkel's party and two others, setting her on the path to a fourth term.
 
 
It involves Mrs Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), its Bavaria sister party the Christian Social Union (CSU) and the Social Democrats (SPD).


In a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Merkel said the deal was the basis of a good and stable government, which "our country needs and which many in the world expect from us".
