GERMANY ELECTIONS: WHO WILL REPLACE ANGELA MERKEL? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW"In some election campaigns you get the impression that it’s perhaps about this or that topic but that in the end it perhaps doesn’t really matter who governs Germany," she said."But I want to tell you from my experience that in the political life of a chancellor there are moments where it’s anything but irrelevant who governs, where you have to take the right decision."

German elections are run on a system of proportional representation – meaning that voters don’t actually elect the chancellor. Ballots are instead cast for the preferred political party. Coalitions must then be formed to combine like-minded groups in support of the candidate that most closely represents their political ideals.
