Merkel And Macron Face Off Over European Commission Election

According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron disagreed over who should be the next chief of the European Commission as EU leaders bargained over names for the bloc's top jobs in the next five years.

Diplomats reportedly said that Merkel was concerned with Macron's swift public dismissal of Berlin's preferred candidate, as the 28 leaders met behind closed-doors without their aides or mobile phones.
