ČT24 | Von der Leyen to run for her seconde mandate

The current head of the European Commission has announced that she will run for her second mandate. What are her chances of success? What are her key topics? What is she yet to focus on? And who are the other possible candidates? Klára Votavová, a researcher at the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, explains for ČT24.

"No one knew her name before. They were counting on completely different candidates. This shows that arguing about top jobs at European level is diplomatically very difficult."
