“Whatever happens with the commission top job, then the ECB can be decided afterwards,” said Christian Odendahl, chief economist at Centre for European Reform in Berlin. “The commission seems to me a much more complicated decision politically. The ECB top job will probably be a part of the horse-trading at the end, but that’s not the priority.”
...“The Commission is politically more complicated and more out of the hands of politicians than the ECB job, which heads of state decide themselves,” said Odendahl. “It’s not impossible that it would drag into the autumn.”
