Business - France`s Moscovici set for EU economy role, under supervision

Former French finance minister Pierre Moscovici has a `good chance` of being named to the European Commission`s top economic and monetary job, a French diplomatic source said on Monday, as attention turned to the line-up of the next EU executive. EU leaders on Saturday appointed Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk as the next president of the European Council, chairing and preparing policymaking EU summits, and Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini as foreign policy chief. European Commission President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker, who was chosen in July, is expected to unveil the new EU executive team early next week, a Commission source said. Juncker is still battling member states to get more women nominees to avert a possible clash with the European Parliament.

World - Dutch name emerges for EU post amid doubt about his chances

The Netherlands has put forward its Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans for a European commission post, a newspaper reported on Monday, but delays in naming a candidate may have hurt his chances of a top post. The Netherlands is seeking a vice president commission post with a weighty portfolio for the veteran diplomat, Dutch daily de Volkskrant said, citing unnamed sources in Brussels. Dutch officials declined to comment because The Hague has not made an official proposal. Analysts said it`s far from certain the Dutch will succeed in gaining a top position after waiting so long to put forward a candidate.
