Just over a month before she seeks re-election, German Chancellor Angela Merkel plans to spend an hour fielding questions from four young YouTubers in a livestream session.
The operators of four popular channels on the Google video platform - Alexi Bexi, Ischtar Isik, "MrWissen2Go" and "ItsColeslaw" - plan to quiz the chancellor between 1 and 2 pm (1100-1200 GMT) on August 16, the broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 said on Tuesday.
The YouTubers represent a broad range of interests, the broadcaster said in a statement, from fashion and lifestyle to gadgets and technology.
People are invited to send their questions for the chancellor via #DeineWahl (Your Choice).
The interview is Merkel's second on YouTube. Two years ago she was quizzed by video star LeFloid. That interview was viewed more than 5 million times on YouTube alone.
