The implementation of the European senior positions, which will later this year be released, it remains as yet unclear. The 28 heads of government knew about Thursday night, after four hours of deliberations not to make decisions. Sunday the 30th of June in Brussels for the next round. “We are not far”, according to prime minister Mark Rutte in the netherlands. “It’s very complicated.”

The European Council should be the successors to propose to buitenlandchef Mogherini, and president Mario Draghi of the European Central Bank. Also, the follow-up of an EU president Donald Tusk will need to be adjusted.

The majority of the attention, however, is to find a new president for the European Commission. The European Parliament wants to make a “topkandidaat” from its own ranks.

The German Manfred Weber, from the christian democratic EPP, however, is not supported by the social democrats and the liberals. They are committed to their own candidates, respectively, in the EU, the supervisory board, Frans Timmermans, and Margrethe Vestager, so there is no support for it is.

“No assurance that there will be on the 30th of June, however, an agreement is reached’

In accordance with the present president of the commission Jean-Claude Juncker, there is no assurance that there will be on the 30th of June to have an agreement with. “But it has to be done. I would suggest, with some amusement, that it is not easy for me.”

“It is not yet clear whether it is the next time you are going to make it,” said mark Rutte, while he was leaving Juncker with a kiss and gave up. “We have been to the mines to take it off.” He also pointed out that there is now no one of the three leading candidates have a majority.

He does still have a chance, ” he said. “And when we get there next week and will not come out, then we’re going to continue the search. In the Netherlands, we have seven months left, so I don’t think it’s really a problem. But it takes so much time. Ultimately, it’s going to succeed, we will be able to Juncker, there is a whole life to do that.”
