Chancellor Angela Merkel won a resounding election victory on Sunday as her conservatives scored their best result since reunification in 1990. It’s a personal triumph for her, but she still faces tough negotiations to form a stable government.

“Merkel has represented Germany at a difficult time and on all the red carpets and in her whole demeanour, she has given Germans the feeling that she’s stood up for their interests in difficult times.”

And for that she deserves a third terms as chancellor of Germany and the title of most powerful woman in the world.

Also consider a voter turnout  of 73% in Germany compared to 57.5% in the US.
