Tuesday, at sunset, in Brussels, leaders from the 28 states of the European Union reached an agreement on portfolios designation for the main functions of the EU’s highly bureaucratic and inefficient structure.
Ursula von der Leyen, the German defense minister of Germany, was elected president of the European Commission. The presidency of the European Council was given to the Belgian Charles Michel, and the post of European diplomacy chief will be occupied by Spanish Josep Borrell. The current head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, receives the leadership of the European Central Bank. The function of President of the European Parliament will be held by the Italian David Sassoli.
The die has been cast
The Macron-Merkel couple decided that Europe would be driven by the friends or the buddies or the group interests.
As you can see, the main EU institutions are headed by Western European representatives.
The countries of Eastern Europe have no representation at the top of the European institutions.
The Macron-Merkel couple has divided Europe again. The 7 states that joined the EU after 2014 are out of the game. The European Union on Tuesday unveiled Europe’s two-speed policy, an objective so dear to Western politicians in Western Europe.
Does anyone think that this game of France and Germany will be easily accepted by the capitals of Eastern Europe?
Not! It is deeply unfair and disrespectful that Paris and Berlin will divide Europe by their interests.
We expect strong signs of dissatisfaction in the capitals of Eastern Europe. Eastern European countries can not only be second-hand players in politics, and in the economy they are a good outlet for Western companies.
This type of policy is not lasting and sustainable for the projects that the EU is promoting.
