Votes on candidates to financial supervisory watchdogs amid gender balance row 

Plenary will vote on the appointment of candidates to the EU’s financial watchdogs on Thursday, amid concerns from MEPs that women are woefully under-represented.

The three votes will give Parliament’s opinion on the suitability of Philip Lane, José Manuel Campa, and Sebastiano Laviola for the posts of Executive Board member of the European Central Bank, head of the European Banking Authority, and Single Resolution Board member respectively. A separate resolution will also be voted on at the same time, decrying the poor gender balance in EU economic and monetary affairs' nominations.

Procedure: Consultation

Vote: Thursday, 14 March
