Commission president candidate Martin Schulz will become the acting leader of the Socialist MEPs, it was revealed Tuesday. The move means Schulz will lead negotiations with EPP Spitzenkandidat Jean-Claude Juncker in the race for the Commission presidency. Schulz led the Socialists, which won 186 MEPs in Sunday's election, between 2004-2012.
