Zone(s): UK, Europe ¦ Sector(s): Politics

[26 June 2014, CITY A.M.] By Kate McCann: David Cameron has been dealt a reprieve in his bid to block the appointment of Jean-Claude Juncker to the role of EU commissioner, after both German chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Minister Rutte of the Netherlands said they would back a vote if agreement cannot be reached between European leaders at a key summit this week. Cameron has called for an end to the spitzenkandidaten process which could see Juncker elected without a democratic vote.
