European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker faces another tough week in his new job.

Following on from the Lux Leaks tax scandal, a group of MEPs will table a vote of confidence.

But the two largest groups in the European Parliament have promised to vote it down.

The former Luxembourg prime minister will also unveil later this week his long-awaited 300 billion euro investment plan.

It’s as yet an unexplained mix of private and public financing.

And it is also unclear how much actual new money will lie behind the attention-grabbing headline figure.

Brussels could be set for another showdown with the French government.

Former French finance minister Pierre Moscovici is now the European commissioner for economic affairs.

He’ll have to run the rule on his former government colleagues’ handling of French public finances.

The EU executive officially has until Sunday to publish its opinion on France and the 17 other eurozone economies.
