0.00-0.023 This structure, and the proposal of the new Juncker Commission Juncker, are fulfilling the promises to the voters. Because he promised to give a priority for economy and specially for growth, for jobs, all over Europe, we need growth all over Europe, and there is a signal of this Commission that specially four Vice-Presidents are responsible for single market and growth, and there is a good signal to the voters. 0.25-0.057 We started this new period on the base of Spitzenkandidat candidate, the top candidate concept, that is the people who are deciding who is governing Europe, and who is leading in the Future. So the people voted in favour of EPP, we are the strongest Group, and now we have an EPP Commissioner, and the next step is that Commission is a really an EPP Commission. We have 14 out of 28 Commissioners from the EPP Party, so we are responsible and we want to deliver. We are ready for work, let's start 0.058-1.41.It is a strong democratic right of the European Parliament to do these hearings, to check the persons who will get power, who are asking for power, and we will do this very seriously. We will check the portfolios; whether they are aware about the content, the challenges in their responsibility and we will check the persons whether they had a good profile in the past. We need commissioners who have for example a clear pro-European profile and history in the past. These are the two questions we are raising up and we will do this very seriously, but in the other hand we want to have success at the end. It's the Juncker proposal, we want to have success, and we want that the new Commission could really start on the first of November.
