Game of EU thrones nears finale

Jean-Claude Juncker, president-elect of the European Commission, speaks at a press conference in Athens, on August 4, 2014The EU’s “game of thrones” is nearing an end after the naming of a new president and diplomatic chief, with the rest of the incoming Brussels regime set to be decided in coming weeks. Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the EU’s executive body, will unveil his new team in early September, aiming to strike a delicate balance of politics, geography and gender. The two top roles were filled on Saturday when Polish premier Donald Tusk was appointed president of the European Council — which brings together the leaders of the 28 EU states — and Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini was named head of the foreign affairs service. France looks set to win the prized economic affairs job for its former finance minister Pierre Moscovici.
