Barroso Supported by European Council

José Manuel Barroso has been supported unanimously by EU heads of state and government for a second five-year mandate as President of the European Commission.

His candidature should now be approved by the European Parliament, where Socialists, Greens and Liberals have started a campaign against his re-appointment.

Another obstacle for Barroso’s nomination may be the unclear outcome of the ratification process of the Treaty of Lisbon.
