EU chooses next leaders

Graphic News

July 3, 2019 -- EU leaders have struck a deal to put women in two of the most important policymaking jobs in the EU for the first time.

After three days of tortuous negotiations, Germany’s defence minister, Ursula von der Leyen, received the support to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as president of the European commission.

And the French managing director of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, will move to Frankfurt to take over from Mario Draghi as the first female president of the European Central Bank once it is formally signed off by the Eurozone group.

Other parts of the package agreed place Charles Michel, Belgium’s liberal prime minister, as the next European Council president, while Josep Borrell, Spain’s foreign minister, is set to become the EU’s foreign policy chief.

Some of the roles must be ratified by parliament.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!

If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
