    I am no german, so I leave it to real germans to correct me. The chancellor is the prime minister. She is not chosen as such, but the outcome of the elections is that clear (her party and the party she wants a coalition with have a majority) that there is almost no doubt that she will be it.

    And this should be in Soapbox, I think.

    Correct, or in general the chancellor is the head of government, so it can be compared with the prime minister in the UK.

    Yup, the chancellor will be elected by the new parliament.

    no, it shouldn't be anywhere here...politics and religion are taboo
    subjects on this forum..

    check the Terms & Conditions section of the FAQ "In recognition of the
    diversity of backgrounds of the members and in the interests of
    community harmony, religious or political comment is not allowed."
