Jean-Claude Juncker will be next president of European Commission
Backed by most EU leaders, Jean-Claude Juncker has been nominated as the next president of the European Commission. The development is a severe impact on opponent David Cameron and threatens to amplify the chances of Britain leaving the European Union (EU).
The British PM David Cameron was opposed to Juncker’s nomination and said it may hamper his efforts to keep Britain in the EU ahead of an in-out referendum to be conducted in 2017.
Former Luxembourg PM, Juncker, was supported by all EU member states except Hungary and Britain.
