The newly re-elected German Chancellor Angela Merkel reacted with mixed emotions as she spoke to her post-election party in Berlin, Sunday. Angela Merkel said she expected a better result. Exit polls in Germany's elections put Angela Merkel and her party on course for a fourth term in office. However, Merkel lost electoral support and that helped deliver the best result for a far-right party in decades. In her victory speech, Merkel vowed to win back votes from the far-right AfD, which finished third.
