ČT24 | Visit of the European Commission President to the Czech Republic

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen arrived in the Czech Republic. She met with President Petr Pavel and Prime Minister Petr Fiala. The visit was part of the campaign ahead of the European Parliament elections in June. Viktor Daněk, Deputy Director of EUROPEUM Institute, commented on Ursula von der Leyen's arrival in the Czech Republic.

It will be more of a game of who will fill the other positions. It is always alchemy that there is a geographical, political and gender balance. Let us bear in mind that in recent times, the central and eastern wing of the European Union has not been able to get any of the high positions.
