Meet Europe’s likely new leaders

•, Paul Ames
 It's musical chairs time at the European Union.

In the coming months, the 28-nation bloc needs to choose new leaders to fill key posts running the world's biggest economic power.

The task is more urgent than usual because the continent is being forced to deal with the risk of war in Ukraine and the threat of revanchist Russia.

Domestically, the EU faces a lingering economic crisis that has left 26 million EU citizens out of work and bred disillusionment among voters increasingly tempted by political extremes.

Despite the challenges, the distribution of the EU's top jobs is rarely based on merit.
