Dutch PM Rutte hopes agreement will be reached on #EUTopJobs

| July 2, 2019

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte (pictured) on Tuesday (2 July) said he hoped EU leaders would reach a decision on filling the bloc’s top posts, but declined to speculate about the chances of Dutchman Frans Timmermans becoming the next European Commission president, writes Anthony Deutsch.

“I hope a majority will eventually be found for someone, in combination with how the other jobs will be filled,” Rutte told journalists as he arrived for a third day of negotiations in Brussels. “I believe everyone wants to reach an agreement today.”

He declined to discuss individual names.
