EU Commission chief Barroso live on euronews


This Wednesday, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso is live on euronews to answer your questions.

Barroso has been fairly explicit about what kind of Europe he wants to see in the future. Only last week at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, he called for the EU to evolve into a Federation of Nation-States.

He also said his own job should eventually be by vote rather than appointment.

“I have already proposed that at the next European election, even before a treaty revision, each party in the EU parliament could present a candidate and then afterwards the future president of the Commission could be selected from the result of the elections,’‘ the EU president told euronews.

Watch the full interview with President Barroso answering questions from the public live on euronews at 19:00 CET.
