Voters in Germany headed to the polls for Parliamentary elections that will determine whether Chancellor Angela Merkel will lead the country, the largest economy in Europe, for a third term. While Merkel has maintained a comfortable lead in opinion polls throughout her campaign, with surveys showing that her Christian Democrats could secure 39 percent of the vote, the bigger question is whether she will be able to continue with the center-right coalition she has led since 2009, or be forced to form a government with her main rivals.
