Pieyre-Alexandre Anglade, Macron's European election emissary, has a front-seat role in persuading parties from across the left-right divide to rally behind the president's drive to redraw the landscape and make Europe relevant again.For all the professed humility, Macron is attempting nothing less than a brutal reshaping of the current political order in Brussels, just as he achieved in France, and a direct challenge to Europe's most powerful leader, Germany's Angela Merkel.Merkel and Macron have forged a strong relationship, Anglade said, dismissing the suggestion Macron's election strategy may put him on a collision course with the German chancellor, who is keeping faith with the EPP. Macron has not designated a leader for his European ambitions and in another challenge to Brussels has said he will not present a "spitzenkandidat" a group's candidate to become the head of the European Commission.
