Berlin: Ahead of Sunday's elections, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has appealed to people for voting as latest polls suggest a highly suspenseful election Sunday, although she appeared all set for a third term.

Merkel sent letters to about five million voters Friday to appeal for their votes, saying that Germany has had four good years and she also wants the next four years to be good, Xinhua reported.

"If you would like to me continue serving as your chancellor, cast your ballots on Sunday and give the votes to the Christian Democrats (CDU)," she said.

Latest polls indicate that her conservative CDU party and their Bavarian CSU sister party are set to win the largest share of votes, securing Merkel a third term in office.
