Motion of censure against the Commission rejected by a large majority
The European Parliament rejected a motion of censure against Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s team on Thursday, with 461 votes against, 101 in favour and 88 abstentions. The motion was tabled by 76 EFDD and non-attached MEPs further to the "Lux leaks" plenary session debate with Mr Juncker on 12 November. A debate on the motion was held on Monday.
In order to dismiss the Commission, under Parliament’s rules the motion would have needed to obtain a double majority: two-thirds of votes cast and a majority of all MEPs (i.e. 376). The motion was tabled by 76 EFDD and non-attached MEPs.
