After two terms in office, Angela Merkel has won another four-year term as chancellor. There's no sign voters are getting tired of her. So what's the secret to her success? What makes Angela Merkel a habit German voters just don't want to break?
Angela Merkel has presided over a time of great influence and economic success. Germany has assumed a more prominent role in the world - and its unassuming chancellor has become a political heavyweight.
The German government wants to increase its anti-spying protection. 3,000 crypto-phones have been distributed to the administration so far. The Chancellery and the White House are negotiating "principles among friends."
Jean-Claude Juncker has won the backing of the European Parliament to become the new head of the EU Commission. He's promising a lot to various people, but has to deal with the recalcitrant Brits - and find more women.
