Will Merkel return to power in Germany?
Germans are heading to the polls this Sunday for a federal election which will ultimately decide whether the incumbent chancellor, Angela Merkel, has another 4 years in power. Voter opinion polls have consistently pointed to Angela Merkel’s center-right Christian Democratic Union and its Bavarian sister-party the Christian Social Union gaining around a third of the vote, hence making it very likely that Merkel will return to power.

The German elections however, are also expected to have a big impact on the EU, the world and also on India, with nalysts hoping that the Modi-Merkel Magic continues.
