Day 2: Commission hearings
Three down, 23 to go…or is it 22? The original Hungarian nominee was disqualified but a replacement has quickly been found in the shape of the country’s current EU ambassador, Olivér Várhelyi. But no news on the Romanian replacement yet after Rovana Plumb was withdrawn over conflicts of interests.
It’s Day 2 of the Commissioner-designate hearings and you can relive Day 1 here.
This morning, it’s Nicolas Schmit for Jobs and Jutta Urpilainen for International Partnerships.
