Jean-Claude Juncker, the CSV frontrunner for the upcoming elections

At a special meeting of the Christian Social Party of Luxembourg on July 11 Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker was approved as its main candidate for the elections which are supposed to be held in the fall.

«I want to once again lead the government» — said Jean-Claude Juncker. Answering journalists’ questions, he said that the occupation of a post in the EU structures (what is actively speculated about in the press) does not interest him. «I stand as a candidate to work in Luxembourg, I want to work in the interests of the country,» — insisted Jean-Claude Juncker.
