Líderes da UE encontram-se para decidir os cargos de topo em Bruxelas

By Jordi Bou

June 27, 2024 - June 28, 2024 - Os dirigentes encontram-se em Bruxelas para tentarem um acordo final
sobre quem irá liderar as instituições da UE nos próximos cinco anos

The 27 heads of state and government reached no final agreement on candidates for the bloc’s top jobs on June 17.

However, a consensus appears to be emerging around the preferred names to sit at the EU’s top table: Germany’s Ursula von der Leyen for a second term as European Commission president, Portugal’s António Costa as European Council president, Malta’s Roberta Metsola as the European Parliament boss and Estonia’s Kaja Kallas as foreign policy chief.

The June 6-9 elections saw the European Parliament shift to the right and dealt major blows to mainstream governing parties in Paris and Berlin. The Franco-German motor that usually propels EU politics along was notably weakened, and hard right parties there gained ground.
