#EUCO The odds are growing that #Italy's FM Federica Mogherini could be proposed to succeed Catherine #Ashton as EU's high representative for foreign and security policy. During the last EU summit when the heads of state nominated Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission president, Italy's PM Matteo Renzi said he had no intention to nominate Mogherini because it was unrealistic to expect that Italy can get another top job since the ECB chief is an Italian (Mario Draghi) and Italy has just taken over the Council presidency. However, in the EU women are currently sought for the top jobs and nationality seems to be taking a back seat. Recently Renzi changed his position and decided to back his foreign minister. If she is to be approved, this will be another powerful post held by an Italian. In addition, we need to mention that an Italian is the chairman of the powerful economic committee of the European Parliament - Roberto Gualtieri. The heads of state will discuss the possible successors for Ashton and Herman Van Rompuy tonight at dinner. Stay tuned for live updates
