Olaf Scholz has been confirmed as Germany's new chancellor, bringing to an end Angela Merkel's historic 16 years as leader, BBC reports. 

He was voted in by the German parliament, where his three-party coalition has a substantial majority, and given a standing ovation.

His centre-left Social Democrats will govern alongside the Greens and the business-friendly Free Democrats.

The German parliament, the Bundestag, backed his appointment by 395 votes to 303, and he was then formally appointed as the ninth federal chancellor by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
