EU Commission President appointment “not a done deal” – O’Sullivan

July 3, 2019

MEPs in the European Parliament have been reacting to the decision by EU leaders yesterday to nominate a German defence minister for the presidency of the European Commission.

After weeks of wrangling, Ursula Von der Leyen was finally selected to be the new president when Jean-Claude Juncker steps down later this year.

However, the European Parliament has to approve her appointment. And according to the Green MEP for Ireland South Grace O’Sullivan, her approval is not a done deal.
