Strijd om topbanen in Brussel begints

Graphic News

May 28, 2019 -- Vijf grote instanties in de Europese Unie moeten nieuwe leiders benoemen in de grootste herschikking van topbanen ooit in het blok.

The posts include presidents of the three political bodies – the executive European Commission (currently Jean-Claude Juncker), the Council of national leaders (Donald Tusk) and the European Parliament (Antonio Tajani) – plus the European Central Bank (Mario Draghi) and the EU’s foreign policy chief (Federica Mogherini).

An EU-wide election last week returned a European Parliament with a splintered centre and gains by pro-EU liberals and greens as well as eurosceptic nationalists and the far-right.

It leaves the EU more fragmented, so finding consensus may be harder than in the past.

After lengthy negotiations, the new top officials will take up their posts on November 1, except for the new European Council chief, who starts on December 1.

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!
