From the news:
VIENNA—Austria’s politics are coming unstuck. Or more precisely, unglued.
Special envelopes designed to hold mail-in ballots for the Oct. 2 runoff presidential election are rimmed with a glue that should seal them tight. But it is mysteriously malfunctioning, and that has provoked a crisis, which in the words of one TV anchor is leading to a “Bundespräsidentenwiederholungswahlverschiebung”—the postponement of the rerun of the presidential election.

Is that a German word? When I was in Vienna, most people spoke German. The way the words are put together, it is similar to German.
