BERLIN, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel was reelected in a vote in the lower house of parliament on Tuesday for a third term, and her coalition government will be sworn into office to rule Europe's biggest economy for the next four years.

Merkel will be formally appointed by German President Joachim Gauck at the president's official residence and head back to the parliament to be sworn into office, thus becoming the country's third post-war chancellor to win a third term.

Cabinet ministers of the coalition government, formed by Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), its Bavarian sister party Chrisitian Social Union (CSU), and the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), will also take the oath in the parliament.
