Struggle for power in Brussels: Juncker disempowered EU financial Commissioner Moscovici

The new EU financial Commissioner Pierre Moscovici can not decide autonomously decisions Euro zone. He must coordinate the surveillance of budgetary and economic policy with the Vice President. The Frenchman is thus deprived of power before he took office.

Pierre Moscovici be destroyed as a new EU financial Commissioner before taking office of President Jean-Claude Juncker.

A geleaktes document to organize the responsibilities of Commissioners illustrates the circumcision of Moscovici’s skills.

It is the decision of the new EU Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker, exclusive to adopt a special rule for the designated New Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Pierre Moscovici. This must develop and submit any decision for the coordination and monitoring of budgetary and economic policies of the Member States, in particular from the euro zone, together with the Vice President for Euro and Social Dialogue Valdis Dombrovskis.

“The European Commission backed a designate New Commissioner Moscovici. This fate befalls otherwise no other designated New Commissioner. So make Jean-Claude Juncker one, Lex-Moscovici ‘and restrict the rights of the French socialists, “commented Sven Giegold, fiscal and economic policy spokesman of the Greens in the European Parliament:

Dombrovskis will apparently ensure that the socialist Moscovici strikes a tough austerity measures and crosses. However, France was also with him as Minister of Finance be debt problem under control.

“Certainly, it is necessary that EU Member States are making efforts to reduce debt and for economic reforms. With this special rule Jean-Claude Juncker shoots but over the top. He creates a Commissioner Second Class. This is anti-European sentiment in France strengthen, “said Giegold on.

It is questionable, as the Frenchman wants to take action against his country. The country is heavily in debt and has a high unemployment rate.

France had also announced recently in wanting to cover the deficit limits for years.

At his hearing in Brussels EU Parliament on Thursday morning, Moscovici has pledged to crack down on deficit sinners in the whole of Europe. “I aspire to that the deficits are reduced,” said the Frenchman. “If a country, large or small, the rules do not comply, does not initiate the necessary steps, then I will push the deficit procedures.”

In particular, conservatives in the parliament accuse the Socialists, he did not get during his tenure as finance minister in Paris that his country’s deficit under control. Moscovici rejected this. During his tenure, which ended six months ago, the debt was employment decreased.
