Commissioner hearings LIVE: Goulard/Lenarcic

Janez Lenarcic and Sylvie Goulard, with the Commisioner candidate from Romania rejected.

The European Parliament is grilling the proposed members of Ursula von der Leyen’s Commission in a series of hearings between 30 September and 8 October.

On Wednesday (2 October), the hearings will be held with Commissioner-designates Sylvie Goulard (France, Internal Market) and Janez Lenarčič (Slovenia,  Crisis Management).

The third candidate due to be questioned on Wednesday, Rovana Plumb (Romania, Transport), was rejected by the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs committee, which deemed she was not fit for the job due to a conflict of interest. Romania is due to propose another candidate this week.
