The procedure used to appoint Mr Selmayr as the Commission’s Secretary-General from 1 March lacked integrity and transparency, said several MEPs in a 12 March plenary debate in Strasbourg.
Further to the plenary debate, Parliament’s Conference of Presidents (President and political group leaders) asked the Budgetary Control Committee to draft and table a resolution, to be put to a vote at a forthcoming plenary session in Strasbourg (provisionally 19 April), together with the vote on the budgetary discharge to the European Commission.
