Europe EU candidate Manfred Weber
EU candidate Manfred Weber said he will try to block the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline if he becomes the next President of the European Commission, according to the Polska Times newspaper.
Opinion polls ahead of the May 23-26 European elections show the EPP would remain the biggest party in the European Parliament, giving Weber a solid chance of becoming Commission president, though he may face resistance from governments who do not want to be bound to choose from among party leaders, Reuters reported. ■
