Do you know your Commission from your Council? Your ECJ from your EPP? Oh… you do? Who are the EU leaders and the heads of the European Union?
Well do you know who’s in charge of all of them?
EUDebates! Your opinion counts!
Who is the head of the EU Council? Who is the President of the European Commission? The European Council is made up of the leaders of the EU member states. Who are the President heads the executive board, governing council and general council of the ECB?
Each of the institutions is headed by a president or a presidency, with some being more prominent than others. Both the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission are sometimes wrongly termed the President of the European Union. Most go back to 1957 but others, such as the Presidents of the Auditors or the European Central Bank have been created recently. Currently (2020),the President of the European Commission is Ursula von der Leyen and the President of the European Council is Charles Michel.
