EUobserver: Germany does not want Juncker to resign
Juncker said at last week's summit that he "doesn't care" about the personal attacks
“Germany does not want Juncker to resign. Full stop. It doesn’t make any sense. Full stop”, Elmar Brok, a senior MEP from the ruling CDU party of German chancellor Angela Merkel told EUobserver on Monday (4 July).
Leonie Haueisen, a spokeswoman for the centre-left SPD party in the ruling coalition, said: “Calls from Germany for Jean-Claude Juncker’s resignation are not known to us”.
They spoke to EUobserver after a British newspaper, The Sunday Times, quoted a German minister, who asked to remain anonymous, as having said that Juncker’s handling of Brexit was “very damaging” and that pressure on him to step aside was becoming “greater”.
