BRUSSELS, May 28, 2019 - British Prime Minister Theresa May (L, Front) arrives at the European Union headquarters for an informal dinner of EU heads of state or government in Brussels, Belgium, on May 28, 2019. The European Union (EU) member states leaders didn't discuss names of the candidates but only the process to choose new president of the European Commission (EC), European Council President Donald Tusk said here Tuesday. During a press conference following the leaders informal dinner, Tusk told reporters that Tuesday's discussion confirmed the agreement reached by the leaders in February last year, that "the European Council will exercise its role when electing the Commission president, meaning -- in accordance with the Treaties -- that there can be no automaticity."
