Nearly three months after Maroš Šefčovič lost the presidential election to Zuzana Čaputová, he has a reason to celebrate.
The Slovak government has agreed on Šefčovič, who has served as the European Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union, to be Slovakia's nominee to the European Commission (EC) again.
“Since he is one of the most successful commissioners, I believe this nomination is good not only for Slovakia but also for the European Commission itself,” said PM Peter Pellegrini (Smer), as quoted by TASR.
The prime minister considers Šefčovič to be an experienced diplomat and professional, whose work has been highly appreciated and respected. Šefčovič is said to be in for one of the top EC positions.
Will he replace Mogherini?
