Commissioner hearings LIVE: Urpilainen/Johansson/Kyriakides

3-LiveBlog

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 for Commissioner-designates Jutta Urpilainen (Finland, International Partnerships); Ylva Johansson (Sweden, Home Affairs); Stella Kyriakides (Cyprus, Health); Nicolas Schmit (Luxembourg, Jobs) and Janusz Wojciechowski (Poland, Agriculture).

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.
