Germany's Merkel likely to win third term

German chancellor, enjoying high approval ratings in run-up to elections, appears poised to stay in power.

    Germans go to the polls on Sunday in an election that is likely to return Chancellor Angela Merkel to power for a record third term. 

    Merkel is enjoying high approval ratings thanks to her tough stance on the eurozone crisis. But the so-called "Teflon chancellor" still has her critics.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer reports on Merkel’s last four years in office.
