Slovenia interested in office of enlargement commissioner


Talking to the press at the Revoz car assembly in Novo Mesto, he said that Slovenia expected the Commission to become more active as regards enlargement to the Western Balkans.

Slovenia is happy with the EU top jobs deal brokered by EU leaders the previous day. "It is a compromise, it was a quest for the lowest common denominator," he said of the talks he attended in Brussels. He believes that the composition of the appointments package is optimal.

When asked about Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković's alleged ambitions to take a high position in the European Commission, Šarec said "I believe that French President Emanuel Macron said it all."

Macron said on Monday that the summit on top jobs failed to produce a deal following an entire night of discussions because of personal ambitions.

Media reports suggest that Plenković enjoyed the support of the Commission's Secretary-General Martin Selmayr, who reportedly also acted to the benefit of Croatia by preventing the Commission from adopting an opinion on the lawsuit brought against Croatia by Slovenia at the EU Court of Justice.
