Parliament’s committees will assess the fitness of the commissioners-designate for their proposed posts in public hearings between 30 September and 8 October. Watch it live online.
On 19 September, the Conference of Presidents, made up of President David Sassoli and the political group leaders, approved the agenda of the hearings (all times are CET):
Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen announced the portfolios of her proposed College of Commissioners on 10 September.
The nominees are decided by the President-elect and national governments. They must each be assessed by the European Parliament committees covering the portfolio for which they have been proposed, before the Parliament votes on the Commission as a whole.
MEPs will assess if each nominee is fit for the position proposed and ready to deliver on the programme that von der Leyen outlined to Parliament in July. Each hearing will last three hours and be streamed live.
After the hearings, the committees prepare evaluation letters on the candidates. Parliament is expected to vote on the new Commission as a whole on 23 October. Find out more detail about the process in our infographic.
