Christian Wulff has become Germany's youngest-ever president after a nail-biting election.
Wulff was born in Osnabruck, and is Roman Catholic. He's been a member of the conservative Christian Democratic Union since 1975.
And he's been one of its four deputy chairmen at the federal level since 1998. A lawyer by profession, he served as Prime Minister of the state of Lower Saxony between 2003 and 2010.
Wulff is widely seen as a politician with a good reputation, which paved the way to his candidacy.
His candidacy for President was formally confirmed by Angela Merkel and heads of the other two parties in early June. Wulff will be Germany's first Roman Catholic President in more than forty years.
