Can Věra Jourová secure an economic portfolio in her continuiong role as EU comissioner?

What do you think are Mrs. Jourová’s chances on getting that economic portfolio within the European Commission that the PM wants? Can her chances be affected by the prime minister’s suspected conflict of interest as alleged by the preliminary EU audit? How is Jourová seen in Brussels? Does she have a good reputation? European Commissioners are supposed to be unbiased so how useful can it be for a member state to have a commissioner in an important position?

Jan Kovář answers these and other questions in his interview with Rozhlas Praha.
