Alexander Stubb: 'Don't blame EU voters for seeking populists'

Our interviewee of the week is a marathon-man politician, a real-life sports fanatic who's now got his eyes on one of the biggest jobs in Europe. Alexander Stubb is a former Finnish prime minister who's putting himself forward to be the centre-right European People's Party candidate to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as EU Commission head from next year.

In our interview, the self-professed Europhile tells FRANCE 24’s Catherine Nicholson why he believes populists have made strong footholds in Europe; how to proceed with under-fire fellow EPP member, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban; and why he believes Italy is being "irresponsible" with its budget.
