Avatar of admin




A day after the closing of the polling stations, whereas the counting of votes continues to be occurring in some nations, the negotiations have began to be mentioned.

The primary dialogue is on the European Council, which must appoint the president of the brand new Fee and determine whether or not to reconfirm Ursula von der Leyen, who’s the EPP candidate for that place.

In danger are additionally the positions of the president of the European Council and the Parliament, plus that of the Excessive Consultant for Overseas Affairs.

The negotiators have been appointed yesterday: for the EPP the Polish Prime Minister Tusk and the Greek Mitsotakis, for the Socialists the Spanish Sánchez and the German Scholz.

Von der Leyen’s scores are mentioned to be rising: in response to most observers, French President Macron, having emerged weakened from the election, wouldn’t have the burden to impose himself as he did 5 years in the past when he blocked Manfred Weber.

The package deal of Ursula von der Leyen within the Fee and Antonio Costa within the European Council appears to stay essentially the most strong.

However solely on the casual dinner of EU leaders subsequent Monday will or not it’s understood whether or not the European Council on the finish of the month will formally present the 4 principal posts.

It’s clear, nevertheless, that there isn’t a time to lose. It could not be a political sign of power on the a part of the EU to stay with out management. And Scholz made it clear yesterday.

The second level is that of the nationwide delegations within the Parliament, as a result of von der Leyen, if appointed by the EU leaders, must be voted by the plenary session.

The teams themselves present no assurance because the vote is secret, so the technique is to go and knock on particular person doorways among the many Socialists, Liberals, Greens and a few ECR delegations.

EPP group chief Weber on Sunday night invited socialists and liberals to “be part of” the EPP, which “gained the election”, to create “a pro-European alliance”.

The events are setting their very own phrases.

The Socialists repeated their unavailability “if the EPP negotiates with the conservatives and reformists”.

The chief of the Renew group, Valerie Hayer, requires “to not make an settlement with Meloni, with PiS, with Reconquête. It’s the excessive proper”.

And ECR co-president Nicola Procaccini accused him of getting “a critical lack of democratic tradition”.

If the numbers are strong for the EPP and the S&D, third place can nonetheless be contested between Renew Europe (79) and the ECR conservatives (73).

The Liberals might shrink in the event that they determine to dump outgoing Prime Minister Rutte’s Dutch VVD social gathering for Wilders’ far-right governing alliance.

President Hayer took her time and promised new entries.

ECR can also be making an attempt to develop: “We intention for the third place – explains Procaccini – but it surely’s not simply numbers that matter, but in addition homogeneity”.

The fishing pool is represented by non-members and people elected with events which have entered Parliament for the primary time.

Within the first group sit Fidesz of the Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán and the German AfD, not too long ago expelled from the ID.

In February, the Hungarian chief had sought to hitch the ECR, creating quite a lot of rifts amongst extra reasonable delegations such because the Czech Republic, which might fairly be prepared to modify to the EPP.

“Each resolution should be taken with the opposite delegations,” Procaccini defined, indicating attainable entries amongst non-members.

Yesterday Orbán as soon as once more dreamed of a merger between Melon’s ECR and Le Pen’s ID: “If they might attain an settlement with Fidesz MEPs, they may turn into the second political drive.”

It does not appear to be within the plans in the meanwhile.

Le Pen and Salvini will meet tomorrow in Brussels with different ID leaders to evaluate the AfD’s request to hitch the group.
