Person of the Year: Merkel beats Putin and the leader of the Islamic State

Time magazine named German Chancellor of the Year Angela Merkel. In the fight for the honorary title, Merkel, among others, overtook Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leader of the Islamic State extremist group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who were shortlisted for candidates.

The winner of the NBC television channel announced Time Editor Nancy Gibbs. According to her, Merkel in 2015 showed how she copes with the most serious challenges, including the debt crisis in Europe, the influx of refugees, and the terrorist attack in Paris, which threatens the security of the entire continent.

Gibbs also noted Merkel's “enduring moral leadership” in a world where she is often lacking, as well as her resistance to tyranny. When Europe was threatened by a serious crisis, Merkel, according to the publication, never stood aside.

The cover of the latest issue of Time is decorated with a portrait of Merkel and the signature "Chancellor of the Free World."

Since 1927, Time magazine has awarded the title "Person of the Year" to individuals who were able to make the greatest impact on the event of the outgoing year.

In addition, this year's shortlist includes Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, American billionaire, presidential campaigner Donald Trump, transsexual Caitlin (Bruce) Jenner, Uber founder Travis Kalanick and, collectively, Black Lives Matter activists for the rights of black Americans.
