DW News published this video item, entitled “Germany’s new Chancellor Olaf Scholz sworn in – What’s to expect? | DW News” – below is their description.
Germany has a new Chancellor. Today, the Social Democrat Olaf Scholz took the oath of office and the reins of power from Angela Merkel. It was a moment in which political history was written here in Berlin. Merkel, the most powerful woman in the world, handed over all of her authority in the first transfer of power in 16 years. Her successor is promising Germany a ‘new beginning.’
The transfer of power was modest, but meaningful. There was little ceremonial pomp and circumstance on offer today. Instead, a generous showing of loyalty to the country’s basic law.DW News YouTube Channel
