The current head of the Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, is tipped to win a second term, being nominated by the European People’s Party, the biggest political group in the European Parliament. EU heads of state and government are today negotiating the post of European Commission head, and each state is making its own proposals for a commissioner. Talks are also underway on the areas and duties assigned to each commissioner. According to Radio Romania’s correspondent in Brussels, the summit is also looking at the support for and the situation in Ukraine, following the Ukraine peace summit held in Switzerland over the weekend and Vladimir Putin’s statements on his conditions to start peace talks.
