Commissioner hearings LIVE: Schmit/Wojciechowski


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

On Tuesday (1 October), it is the turn of Commissioner-designates Nicolas Schmit (Luxembourg, Jobs); Janusz Wojciechowski (Poland, Agriculture); Jutta Urpilainen (Finland, International Partnerships); Ylva Johansson (Sweden, Home Affairs) and Stella Kyriakides (Cyprus, Health).

László Trócsányi, the Hungarian Commissioner-nominee for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, was rejected by the Legal Affairs committee on the basis of a conflict of interest incompatible for the job and therefore his hearing has been suspended.
