Merkel will head a much-changed new Cabinet, with the governing parties - which are traditional rivals - keen to send signals of renewal after a September election in which all lost significant ground.

The coalition of Ms Merkel's conservative Christian Democratic Union, its Bavaria-only sister party the Christian Social Union and the centre-left Social Democrats has 399 seats.

Wednesday's parliamentary vote came 171 days after the election, almost double the previous record. Two months after Germany's federal election a year ago, five weeks of exploratory talks collapsed, casting uncertainty over Chancellor Angela Merkel's future in office.

Chancellor Angela Merkel promised Monday to work for a strong Europe and said she's hopeful talks can resolve the standoff over USA tariffs, declaring that "it's finally time to start work" as Germany's new government prepares to take office, reports AP. At least 35 coalition lawmakers didn't support her Wednesday, though that was in line with results at the beginning of her two previous "grand coalitions" of Germany's biggest parties. Merkel has been widely described as the de facto leader of the European Union, the most powerful woman in the world, and the leader of the Free World. "Such differences of opinion over whether situations are fair or not have to be resolved in talks, I think, and not if it can be avoided in some way by unilateral actions", she told reporters in Berlin.
