    President of European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, proposes to create a europäischenFinanzminister. In his vision, outlined in his speech on "situation of Union" in September, this European finance Minister InPersonalunion is to be one of Vice-Presidents of European Commission and Chairman of Eurogroup.

The Council of European Union and European have final say in adoption of European laws.

    There are also practical reasons to speak against Juncker's European finance ministers. In order to be able to exert real influence, chairman of Eurogroup must be accepted by national mini-star. Therefore, this should continue to be chosen by Mitgliedsstaatender eurogroup rar than being legitimized by anor institution.
