Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is the Coalition then going to insist that they have the real power to select the Commission President, or are they going to defer to the Council?

I hope the Green group (now with 4 pirates) survives the process. In general I think one should not be afraid of going into opposition, though in this case it might be better to be on the inside, as long as some freedom is retained to vote differently at times. This because it gives more power but doesn't tie up the parties to be loyal to that power, as so few voters are informed about what goes on in Brussels. (In 2014 the lead EPP candidate here ran as being opposed to Juncker without being called on it.)
