A majority of the leaders of the EP political groups expressed support for the European Commission, led by Jean-Claude Juncker, in a debate on a motion of censure on the European Commission. The motion was presented by Marco Zanni (EFDD, IT), one of the authors of the text.
The motion will be put to a vote on Thursday. In order to dismiss the Commission it would have 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 further to the "Lux leaks" plenary session debate with Mr Juncker on 12 November.
