The European Socialists picked Martin Schulz on Saturday to be their preferred candidate to become the next president of the European Commission.

The 58-year-old German politician was the only name in the race.

Schulz, currently the president of the European Parliament, wants the 28-member bloc to focus more on job creation.

Euronews asked the one-time bookseller whether he thinks he can stay on in his current role and campaign for Germany’s Social Democrats at the forthcoming EU elections.
