BERLIN, June 13 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel has not altered her view that Luxembourg's Jean-Claude Juncker should become president of the European Commission, a government spokesman said on Friday.

"The German chancellor has very clearly said, including in her recent speech to parliament, that she is in favour of Jean-Claude Juncker becoming the next European Commission president and that she will work towards him getting a majority," Steffen Seibert said, adding that "nothing has changed" in this regard.
