Macron And Merkel Tries Finding A Common Ground In Picking The Next President For The EU Commission

Date:

The decision of picking the next President of the European Union Commission is in hot talks as the French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are avoiding to display any sort of disagreement over the issue.

An official from Emmanuel’s office confirmed this on Monday. According to the official, both Emmanuel and Angela want to get this process done ideally in the month of June, hinting that there was a telephonic conversation between the leaders.

The two leaders, however, seems to have different opinions and views on how to select the President for the European Union Commission. Emmanuel told Angela that he wanted the EC (European Council) to schedule a meeting regarding the system of Spitzenkandidat to choose the President and that it won’t be automatic. Where Merkel seems to prefer the system, Macron is quite confident that a majority  of member states would agree on that.

People eyeing for the elite position of the EU Commission President are current Vice President Frans Timmermans and outgoing European Union Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager.
