e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa
rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber o
f the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信 上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog
ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democ
rats were both rejected by some EU member states. The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦
es in the
European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has
ate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.
The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦
上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh
ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con
flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信
e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.
Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU
上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro
pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.
Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦
and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur
opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信
support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

“It is China’s consistent position that Sino-US economic and trade frictions should ulti
