The Czech candidate for EU Commissioner Věra Jourová is to meet with EC President Jean Claude Junker on Wednesday to discuss her possible future portfolio. The Czech government has been striving for an economic portfolio and Ms. Jourová, who heads the Regional Development Ministry in the centre-left government, is aspiring to head the European regional development portfolio, currently run by Austria. If she makes a successful bid, Jourová would appear before the respective committee for the traditional “grilling” at the end of September and take up her post in early November.
