Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel secures fourth term after coalition party approves deal

Angela Merkel has secured her fourth term as Germany's Chancellor, ending nearly six months of uncertainty since the last election.
Members of the Social Democrat Party voted in favour of joining a coalition, clearing the last major hurdle to forming a new government.
However, the veteran politician has given away some key roles in the government to secure the deal, which was put to members after last-minute crunch talks in February.

Olaf Scholz, the SPD's acting leader, said: "This was a really important democratic decision for our country."
