Chancellor Angela Merkel has called a news conference on Sunday evening, a sign interpreted by politicians and the media that she has made up her mind to seek a fourth term as the conservative candidate in the 2017 federal election.

Merkel, in power since 2005, has said she would announce her decision at the appropriate moment.

The pragmatist, 62-year-old Merkel has steered Europe through the euro zone crisis and the biggest influx of migrants to the continent since World War Two.

Even though her popularity has dipped following the influx of some 900,000 migrants last year, a poll earlier this month showed more than half of Germans want her to run for a fourth term.
