Angela Merkel and Armin Laschet
Angela Merkel's Party Loses To Social Democrats: Germany

Germany's Social Democrats won the national-election and asserted a "clear mandate" to form a government for the first-time since 2005, ending Angela Merkel's 16-year conservative-reign on September 26. A three-way coalition led by either Social-Democrats or Merkel's conservatives is the most anticipated verdict, with neither major party possessing a majority. Merkel intends to resign after the election, making the vote a historic-occasion that will determine the future-path of Europe's economy.
