That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in

e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa

rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog

ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.

The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦

es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad

opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig

ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh

ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信

e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU

上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro

pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.

Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦

and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur

opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信

support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

However, in late April, he noticed trouble brewing in the financial statem

Although they were reluctant at first, his relatives sold the shares at a

slight loss, but kept most of their 4,000 yuan ($578) investment intact.

A short time later, the company’s stock went into free fall when the Shanghai Stock Exchange plunged as a result of ri

Companies are also introducing low-price options to

 attract the young consumer group. In late May, Qunar teamed up with 33 domestic and foreign carriers, including Air China, Chi

na Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, United Airlines and All Nippon Airways, to l

aunch discounted prices for students on more than 3,000 routes, along with the concept of student flight tickets.

Students who have registered successfully with their identific

tion documents on the platform will be able to book cheaper tickets. For instance, a one-way

flight ticket from Guangzhou to Beijing can be as cheap as 460 yuan ($66.7), which is about half of the price tag – 8

62 yuan – for a second-class seat on a high-speed train. Qunar said such low-price flight tickets compared with high-spee

d trains may change the travel habits of college students and create user stickiness.
