The German chancellor faces a key test of her refugee policy: voters will go the polls in three regional elections on Sunday. Merkel is supporting the CDU candidate in Rhineland-Palatinate, Julia Klöckner, during her campaign.
Is Angela Merkel already under pressure less than a month after re-election? The German chancellor has fought back after her party's poor performance in Lower Saxony and the rise of a "new" conservatism in Austria.
A study has found that the number of refugees whose loved ones may join them in Germany is much lower than government estimates. The figures potentially remove an obstacle for Chancellor Angela Merkel in coalition talks.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel says her CDU will hold talks with the FDP and the Greens on forming a coalition government. The move was widely expected after the Social Democrats said they wanted to be in opposition.
Germany's European neighbors are not overly concerned by the aftermath of the election in Berlin. They expect Angela Merkel to remain the "dealmaker" in Europe. Trust in her appears as strong as ever, says Barbara Wesel.
