With EPP, the centre right party, topping the election, its candidate Jean Claude Juncker was able to secure the support to become the President elect of the European Commission 2014-2019 despite fierce opposition from UK Prime Minister David Cameron. Juncker is expected to be approved by Parliament this week on Tuesday 15th July.
