Weakened Merkel wins fourth term, hit by nationalist 'earthquake'

Weakened Merkel wins fourth term, hit by nationalist 'earthquake'Chancellor Angela Merkel clinched a fourth term in Germany’s election Sunday, but her victory was clouded by the entry into parliament of the hard-right AfD in the best showing for a nationalist force since World War II. Merkel, who after 12 years in power held a double-digit lead for most of the campaign, scored around 33 percent of the vote with her conservative Christian Union (CDU/CSU) bloc, according to preliminary results. Its nearest rivals, the Social Democrats and their candidate Martin Schulz, came in a distant second, with a post-war record low of 21 percent.

Germany's Syrian refugees celebrate Merkel win but fear rise of far-right

Germany's Syrian refugees celebrate Merkel win but fear rise of far-rightBy Joseph Nasr BERLIN (Reuters) – Syrian refugees rejoiced on Sunday at the news that Angela Merkel had secured a fourth term as German chancellor, but said they were alarmed by the rise of the far-right AfD party, which they feared could push her to tighten asylum rules. “We prayed that Merkel would win,” said Fatima al-Haidar, a mother of two from Damascus. The conservatives bled support to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which entered parliament for the first time as the third-biggest party, cashing in on anger at Merkel’s decision to welcome more than 1.3 million refugees.
