EU leaders failed to reach a consensus on the bloc’s top positions, including the European Commission presidency during talks that ended in the early hours on Friday. EU leaders will gather again on 30 June to decide on the bloc’s key posts. A decision must be made before the first European Parliament session on 2 July.
French President Emmanuel Macron has voiced support for Angela Merkel to occupy the post of European Commission president, should she opt to stand for the position.
