President of the ecu Commission, the ecu Union’s branch and most powerful establishment, isn’t employment that enjoys the celebrity or the grandeur of a political leader. therefore if your name’s showing within the media, chances are high that, something’s in all probability gone terribly wrong.
The EU’s unedifying spat with the uk over Covid-19 vaccines has dragged von der Leyen and her management vogue into the spotlight.
