Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Merkel Wishes Scholz Good Luck as New German Chancellor” – below is their description.

Center-left leader Olaf Scholz on Wednesday became Germany’s ninth post-war chancellor, opening a new era for the European Union’s most populous nation and largest economy after Angela Merkel’s 16-year tenure.

After being elected to the post by lawmakers in parliament, and then sworn in by the country’s president, Scholz met Merkel at the chancellery for a handover ceremony.

Merkel wished him good luck.

“I wholeheartedly wish you all the best on the job and good fortune for our country,” she said.

Scholz thanked Merkel for her work, telling her that she had done “great things” for Germany.

Scholz’s style has often been likened to Merkel’s, although they are from different parties.

Neither is given to public displays of emotion or rousing speeches.
