Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We haven't done it. Macron and Merkel have cemented in place the actual head of the Commission, Sec-Gen Martin Selmayr, with a token figure as front (which was previously the case with Juncker anyway). In return Macron got a Frenchwoman into the BCE (something of a token too, because Lagarde is a lawyer, not a central banker).

It seems (say "reports") that some countries voiced disapproval on Monday of Selmayr's excessive power (and abuse of) at the Commission. Were these voices heard?

I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
