Barroso Officially Applies for Second Mandate

Jose Manuel Barroso has announced his candidacy for a second five-year term as the European Commission’s president.

The next EU President, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, dismissed proposals – said to come from France – that Mr Barroso be given only interim backing until October.

The issue will be reviewed during the European Council summer meeting (June 18-19th).
