Fire Jean-Claude Juncker from his post as President of the EU Commission

Jean-Claude Juncker is an enemy of democracy. Already during his premiership of Luxembourg from 1995 to 2013, he is being questioned over his role in the setting up of special tax arrangements which Luxembourg offered to big companies, draining EU member states of valuable tax revenue. These arrangements might well amount to state aid to these multinationals. Now in his new role as President of the EU Commission, he has been trying to manipulate the democratice systems of sovereign EU member states. On 11th December 2014, he appeared on Austrian television; he was asked about the current situation in Greece, where the PM is fighting against Tsipras' Syriza party (which is ahead in the polls). Juncker's response was:

"I'd prefer if known faces would show up again in Greece. I'm sure the Greeks, who don't have an easy life, know very well what a wrong election result would mean for Greece and for the euro area."

The European Commission is not meant to have opinions on the election results of member states, nor is there such a thing as a "wrong election result". Juncker should be fired immediately, the Commission should initiate an investigation and issue an apology. Additionally, a comprehensive investigation into Luxembourg's unfair tax rebates should now be undertaken.
