The European Commission is the executive branch of the European Union (EU) and the only body that can propose EU laws.
The President of the European Commission is chosen not by the European people, but by the European Parliament. Since 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker, 64, a former prime minister of Luxembourgh, has been President of the European Commission. As such, he leads a cabinet or college of commissioners who direct the Commission’s civil service, set the policy agenda and determine legislative proposals.
On December 18, 2018, @LionelMedia tweeted a video of Juncker so unsteady and wobbling that he had to be held up by two men.
Juncker claims that he suffers from sciatica attacks because of a 1989 car accident, which cause occasional unsteadiness. But speculations about alcoholism have surrounded Juncker for several years and have been discussed by several high-profile EU politicians. In 2014, then Dutch Minister of Finance Jeroen Dijsselbloem described Juncker in an interview as a “heavy smoker and drinker”, but later apologized for his comments. (Wikipedia)
