The European Commission - President Jean-Claude Juncker

Juncker, a 64-year-old former prime minister of Luxembourg, is known as one of the main architects of the Maastricht Treaty signed in 1992 that established the European Union and led to the creation of a common currency, the euro.

Juncker has been politically active from his youth, joining the Christian Social People's Party, which has been a dominant force in Luxembourg politics, in 1974. He was first appointed to a government post at the age of 28 and swiftly rose through the ranks.

He served as Luxembourg prime minister for almost 20 years from 1995 before being elected to the presidency of the European Commission in 2014.

With his term set to end in October, Juncker recently said that one of his major achievements was to have helped keep Greece in the euro zone amid the European debt crisis, while one of his worst failures was to have kept silent ahead of the 2016 Brexit referendum despite what he called "lies" told by campaigners promoting Britain's departure from the European Union.

Juncker earned a master's in law in 1979, but never practiced as a lawyer.
