MEPs voting today for new European Parliament president

July 3, 2019

MEPs in the European Parliament are today voting for a new president. The vote follows yesterday’s agreement by EU leaders on who should fill the top jobs within the EU.

The German defence minister Ursula Von der Leyen was finally selected to be the president of the European Commission.

Today MEPs will pick a leader from four candidates. One of the MEPs up for the top job is Ska Skeller who is a German MEP and a member of the Green Party. She told the Parliament this morning why she felt the EU was so important.
