End for Merkel? German chancellor could be finished even if she wins Sunday vote

The Social Democrats Party (SPD) is set to announce the results of its postal vote to decide whether or not to form a coalition under Mrs Merkel's control.

But just as Mrs Merkel finds out whether she will lead a new government, the entire German political system is undergoing a shake-up because of the growing importance of the Alternative for Germany party (AfD).

The change means even if Mrs Merkel wins on Sunday, all politicians, including the Chancellor will face increased competition from the powerful AfD.
