Macron And Merkel Seek Common Ground On EU Commission

According to officials in the office of French President Emmanuel Macron, he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel don’t want to show disagreement over the picking of the next president of the European Union Commission.

The two leaders, however, appear to have different views on how to pick the new president.

Macron told Merkel he wanted the European Council to establish that the system of the “Spitzenkandidat” to pick the Commission’s president won’t be automatic.
