I capi di stato EU bocciano Merkel, Weber e il Ppe. Non li vogliono.

La scelta di presidente della Commissione Europea e dei suoi Commissari è di competenza del Consiglio Europeo, ossia dell’assise dei capi di stato e di governo.

Se è vero che la decisione potrebbe essere presa a maggioranza qualificata, sarebbe altrettanto vero ricordare come ad una imposizione corrisponderebbe l’estensivo uso del diritto di veto da parte degli esclusi, specie poi sui budget economici.

La politica dovrebbe essere l’arte di trovare accordi che soddisfino tutte le parti, virtù in cui i tedeschi non brullano.

Per quanto riguarda invece l’europarlamento, al di là delle smargiassate elettorali, si deve constatare come Ppe ed S&D abbiano perso una quarantina di seggi ciascuno: hanno perso le elezioni, e di brutto.

Una alleanza tra Ppe (182 sggi), S&D (153) ed Re (108) è numericamente possibile, e forse sarà quella poi messa in essere, ma sarebbe formata da partiti con interessi e programmi molto divergenti. Non a caso, Ppe ed S&D avevano proposto il loro proprio candidato alla presidenza della Commissione: due candidature conflittuali tra di loro.

Adesso ambedue queste forze non hanno la capacità di un accordo e nemmeno quella di imporsi: possono solo generare ostacoli insormontabili.

Poi, le scelte fatte nell’europarlamento si ripercuoto invariabilmente nel Consiglio Europeo. Infine, resta sempre aperta, come piaga purulenta, la questione del rinnovo del Governatore dell’Ecb.

Questa ultima frase ben descrive la situazione dei fatti.

Volenti o nolenti, I&D ha 73 seggi ed il Cre 62, 135 voti in totale, ai quali dovrebbero essere aggiunti quelli degli identitari sovranisti allocati in gruppi diversi.

Ppe e Frau Merkel per anni hanno demonizzato quanti non avessero pensato esattamente come loro avrebbero voluto che pensassero: è stato, ed è ancora, un ostracismo a tutti gli effetti.

Ma possono permettersi di dar ostracismo solo personalità molto forti nella madrepatria e con salde maggioranze:ossia proprio l’opposto della situazione in cui versa Frau Merkel, il cui partito, la Cdu, è quotato attorno al 20%, con una Große Koalition moribonda.

Adesso Frau Merkel ed il Ppe stanno iniziando a pagare la persecuzione ideologica cui hanno sottoposto per anni i paesi del Visegrad e quelli dell’ex est Europa, nonché l’atteggiamento altero e tracotante che hanno usato all’Italia.

Chance of Weber Becoming Commission President Getting Slim

‘Things are complicated’: Merkel ready to compromise on EU Commission chief

«German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted Wednesday that she might have to drop her choice for the next leader of the European Commission in a spirit of compromise.

Reporting to the German parliament on a failed effort last week to name a new top team to reform the bloc in the coming years, Merkel said a fresh summit on Sunday could again prove fractious.

“Only those put forward by the European Council for the election of the European Commission president can stand and I don’t decide on this recommendation alone,” she said.»

EU leaders decide against Weber for Commission presidency – report

«European Union leaders have agreed that conservative German candidate Manfred Weber will not become president of the bloc’s executive Commission, Germany’s Die Welt daily reported on Friday, citing sources familiar with the decision.

The decision was reached during talks on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, Die Welt said. Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had backed Weber’s bid to replace Jean-Claude Juncker, has accepted the decision.

French President Emmanuel Macron had opposed Weber’s candidacy.»

Deutsche Welle. 2019-06-29. Weber won’t be next European Commission president: report

German conservative politician Manfred Weber will not be the next president of the European Commission, according to a German newspaper. EU leaders have been wrangling for weeks over who should get the top job.

EU leaders meeting at the G20 summit in Japan agreed Friday that Manfred Weber would not lead the European Commission, according to Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

The bloc’s member states are hoping to decide on a candidate to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as commission head before the first session of the new European Parliament begins on July 2. 

Weber had seemed the most likely choice, given that he is the leading candidate of the biggest group in the Parliament — the center-right European People’s Party (EPP). But the conservative from Germany has failed to attract enough support from other parties.

Citing sources close to EU officials, Welt reported that Weber had been eliminated from the race following consultations between EU leaders and the different European party groups.The sources also said German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a Weber supporter, had already accepted the decision.

At the Osaka summit, Merkel merely said that  a solution should be found “on the basis of the prime candidates” agreed on in the bloc.

A compromise candidate

The plan to take Weber off the table marks a breakthrough following weeks of deadlock among EU leaders over who should take the European Commission’s reins. 

Weber had argued he had the strongest claim to the presidency given that his EPP won the largest share of votes in last month’s European elections. But critics, including French President Emmanuel Macron, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and others, said he lacked experience.

EU leaders are due to hold a summit on Sunday to try and decide whether the leadership role should go to Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans, a Social Democrat from the Netherlands, or another candidate from the EPP.

Other possible center-right contenders include EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, World Bank chief executive Kristalina Georgieva, and Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.

Candidates can only be approved if they have the support of at least 21 of the 28 EU leaders, as well as backing from a majority in the new 751-seat European Parliament.

The Commission is a powerful body responsible for monitoring member states’ budgets and proposing policies on a range of issues, including climate change, immigration, tech regulation and trade.

Whoever takes over as president will lead the bloc for the next five years as it grapples with Brexit, weak economic growth, the rise of euroskeptic sentiment and other major challenges.
