Jacques Santer in Europe

Life and Work of Jacques Santer (1937-)

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes jacques santer (1937-) in the following terms: [1] Jacques Santer succeeded Jacques Delors as president of the EuropeanCommission in 1995, the second Luxembourger to hold this high office. Chosen as a compromise candidate, he proved a weak leader, with conventional integrationist views. In 1999 he was forced to resign, along with the entire Commission, because of his failure to control a culture of irresponsible neglect, leading to waste and corruption.
