German Chancellor Angela Merkel will run for a fourth term in elections next year, a senior politician in her party told.

It is Merkel's advisor Norbert Röttgen who said this in an interview with CNN on Tuesday.

- She is absolutely determined, willing, and ready to contribute to strengthen the international liberal order. But we can't see the Chancellor or Germany as last man standing, he said in the interview.

Merkel, who belongs to the bourgeois CDU party, has been a very popular prime minister since she was first elected in 2005.

But over the past year, her support has dropped sharply in polls, largely because of her and the government's refugee policy.

If Merkel is re-elected in 2017 and sits the period out, she will equal Helmut Kohl's 16 years as prime minister.

However, as it seems today, with the political climate and the anger from Germans, it would require a miracle for her to get re-elected.
