Germany's Steinmeier officially presented as presidential candidate

Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has been officially presented as presidential candidate by the German coalition government.

Christian Democrat (CDU) Chancellor Angela Merkel described Steinmeier as being "the right candidate for this time," saying that the foreign minister's political experience was an important prerequisite for the office of German president.

She said Steinmeier would have the support of many citizens, who knew that they could trust him, partly because of his down-to-earth character and his knowledge of the world, Deutsche Welle reports.
