No Barroso Deal For Reinfeldt

Published måndag 6 juli 2009 kl 17.51

Update 15:57

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has failed to reach a deal with representatives from the European Parliament over whether European Commission President José Manuel Barroso should continue in his post.

Barroso has the backing of all 27 EU government leaders, but the European Parliament is less convinced, and wants more information on what Barroso hopes to achieve in his second period as Commission President before giving him the all-clear. This means that no vote can be taken until after the summer break, in September. Reinfeldt was hoping for a vote in July to make Sweden's tenure as rotating head of the EU more stable, with Barroso already in place as head of the Commission before the summer. Swedish MEP Lena Ek puts the blame firmly on the shoulders of Barroso and the European Council themselves.
