Merkel pledges Germany 4 more good years

BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Angela Merkel says her conservatives will do everything to make the next four years successful for Germany after what appears to be a triumphant election win.

ARD and ZDF television projections Sunday showed a wide lead for Merkel's conservative Union bloc over challenger Peer Steinbrueck's Social Democrats. Merkel told supporters: "This is a super result."

But Merkel's coalition partners for the past four years, the pro-business Free Democrats, were in danger of losing their seats in Parliament.

That means it's uncertain who Merkel can govern Germany with in a third four-year term.

Steinbrueck said his party didn't achieve the result it expected. He said: "The ball is in Ms. Merkel's court. She has to get herself a majority."
