European commission: Who’s gonna drop?

Neues Deutschland (Berlin)

The conservative EPP candidate as head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, claimed the job, after his party obtained a majority of seats in the new European parliament.

However, most of the observers think German Chancelor Angela Merkel will have the last word.
