Juncker says Renzi wrong to say EC run by bureaucrats

Commission president say politicians in charge

(ANSA) - Brussels, November 5 - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Wednesday Italian Premier Matteo Renzi was wrong to suggest bureaucrats are responsible for the organization. "To say the Commission is made up of bureaucrats or to say that you do not accept lessons from bureaucrats is not something that I like," said Juncker. "I'm the head of 27 political commissioners and we are not bureaucrats, we are politicians". Renzi has said: "Reducing the power of bureaucracy in Europe is of the utmost importance".
