Commission President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker started interviewing candidates for commissioners on Tuesday, after all member states except Belgium presented their candidacies. Belgium is expected to do so on 4 September, though the Commission has not confirmed the date.

“We cannot still confirm when this process will end as we still don’t have a candidate from Belgium”, Bertaud added.
