Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Grahnlaw: Barroso and I - European elections
Euronews in European elections - EPP backs Barros mandate II tells us:

"The center-right European People's Party has given public backing to the re-appointment of Jose Manuel Barroso for a second term as the president of the European Commission.

The EPP's unanimous decision came at the end of the party's two-day congress in Warsaw, at which it launched its European Parliament election campaign."


What has this backing to do with me?

It is no great surprise that Barroso's own political fraction, the European People's Party (EPP), endorses a new five year term for him at the helm of the Commission.

However, in the spirit of the Treaty of Lisbon and within the possibilities of the Treaty of Nice, I had expected each political party at European level to nominate its own candidate for the post.
