Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Where?
supranational government of the European Union, assembled, not government of the United States of America

What?
properties* of EU government
(a) laws (codified rules of permissible and impermissible business between persons*)
(b) hierarchical public offices of (bureaucracy, "civil service")

How? (establishment and enforcement processes for What?s )
(a) legislated or decreed
(b) electoral or appointed

Why?
to facilitate and regulate* business (common* exchange of ahh goods* between two or more persons*)

When?
one cannot recall agreed terms of government, the reasonable interlocutor locates the pertinent What? How? references so as to communicate reasonably with others.

For this What? How? question, assignment of nominees for president to the office of European Commission, and in the absence of trusted colloquial informants, reading texts of TEU and EC laws will be instructive.

--
* define one's terms: these words each denote several meanings and connotations relating instant language performance to a particular purpose ("context" of speech)--a utilitarian intention, doubtless.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
