Bundestag Confirms Wulff As New German President

CDU Bundestag faction leader Volker Kauder helps Greens party Bundestag faction co-leader Renate Kuenast put on her jacket during the official confirmation of new German President Christian Wulff at the Bundestag on July 2, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. Wulff was the candidate supported by both Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and Westerwelle's Free Democrats (FDP) political parties, though because his election required three rounds of voting by the Federal Assembly before he received sufficient votes to win, many analysts are describing the election as a political disaster for Merkel. Wulff succeeds former President Horst Koehler, who unexpectedly resigned at the end of May.
