EPP Backs Juncker for European Commission President at Summit of Party Chairmen

With the European Parliament elections just a few weeks away, the campaign for European Commission president is also intensifying. That's why the EPP Group's choice for the job – former Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker of Luxembourg – has been rallying the troops in a summit of leaders of the European as well as national parliaments. The former head of the Eurogroup of finance ministers played a key role in navigating the Eurozone through the financial crisis. With the campaign motto Experience, Solidarity, Future, Mr. Juncker is seen by his supporters as having the steady and skillful hand needed to shepherd the EU out of the crisis. Available material includes an edited package.
