Adelina Marini
Today is a #Eurogroup day. One of the crucial points on the meeting's agenda is the election of a new president. There are four candidates for the position - the minister of finance of Portugal Mario Centeno, of Luxembourg Pierre Gramegna, of Slovakia Peter Kazimir, and of Latvia Dana Reizniece-Ozola. If no candidate receives 10 of the 19 votes each of them will be informed how many votes they'd received and they will have the possibility to withdraw. Ministers will vote until a candidate receives simple majority. The term of the chairman is 2.5 years. He or she will succeed Jeroen Dijsselbloem on the post on 13th of January.
Apart from the election of a new president, the Eurogroup will discuss the Greek bailout programme and the start of the new European Semester. This meeting will again open its doors for non-euro area ministers to finish the preparation for the Euro Area summit on 15 December

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
