OE: The selection of top EU jobs explained
Following the recent European elections, Open Europe’s Zoe Alipranti explains the path that lies ahead for the selection of top EU jobs.
An EU summit was held on Tuesday May 28 to discuss the candidates for the top EU jobs for the next five years.
Positions at stake include the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Council and European Central Bank, and the EU High Representative of Foreign Affairs.
Overall, the selection of top jobs is likely to be a protracted and unwieldy process.
