New Commission with EPP in key roles for Europe´s future
Release Date: 10 September 2019
“The new European Commission proposed Tuesday has strong EPP presence in key positions aimed at shaping Europe’s future”, says EPP Group Chairman Manfred Weber. Also achieving gender and geographical balance, the new Commission’s EPP members will be in charge of issues like budget, health, research, migration and the future of Europe. Weber says the EPP Group will have an open mind at the Commissioners-designate hearings, but that the nominees must convince him and his colleagues that they are qualified to do the job.
