Ursula won an “election” in which she was the only candidate by just 9 votes!
By 383 votes European parliament confirmed Ursula von der Leyen for a five-year term as European Commission President. It’s baffling when they call it “election” because Ursula von der Leyen had zero competition.
Standing ovation for Ursula who won in an election against herself by only 9 votes!

Oooooooh choices, choices. pic.twitter.com/a1BV0RWVlb
