Next step: Parliament hearings to Commissioners-designate, here are our suggestions

Tuesday, 9 September 2014 - 11am

On 10th September, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, announced his team of 27 Commissioners-designate, including seven Vice-Presidents, as well as the distribution of portfolios of the next European Commission. The European Parliament has now to vote by consent for the entire College of Commissioners, including the President and the High-Representatiove of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. This is preceeded by hearings of the Commissioners-designate in the relevant parliamentary committees. 

Cooperatives Europe considers these hearings as a very important moment for European democracy. Cooperatives Europe has prepared a list of questions that we would like to address to commissioners-designate during the Parliament hearings. 

Please find Cooperatives Europe's list with questions to Commissioners-designate below.
