Dossier: Merkel's Record So Far

The honeymoon period for Germany's new government has ended, but an end to the people's infatuation with their new chancellor seems nowhere in sight. Read more in our dossier.


Things have been going pretty well for Germany's new chancellor so far

A little more than three months into her new job as Germany's head of government, Angela Merkel continues to enjoy extremely high popularity ratings.

After focussing mainly on foreign policy during her first 100 days in office, Germany's first female chancellor has been praised for her performance so far. But some fear that initial worries about a reform stop under a so-called grand coalition of Merkel's Christian Democrats and the country's Social Democratic Party will still prove to be true.

It will be up to Merkel and her cabinet to show that they are willing to tackle burning issues such as the country's chronic unemployment problem. To bring you up to speed on what's been happening so far, DW-WORLD.DE has compiled his dossier that offers you a look at Germany's new government.
