Extension of the term of office of the Chairperson of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) (A8-0348/2015 - Roberto Gualtieri)

  Ivo Vajgl (ALDE), in writing. ‒ I voted in favour because I approve the proposal for the extension of the term of office of Gabriel Bernardino as Chairperson of the EIOPA by another five-year term. The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) was established as a consequence of the reforms to the structure of supervision of the financial sector in the European Union. The reform was initiated by the European Commission, following the recommendations of a Committee of Wise Men, chaired by Mr de Larosière, and supported by the European Council and Parliament. This authority plays an important and responsible role and after the hearing with Gabriel Bernardino, at which he made an opening statement and then responded to questions from the members of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs and after a careful evaluation, I believe the approval was justified.
