Hearings: New Commission

Hearings: scrutinising the new European Commission

After providing written replies to questions from MEPs, the commissioners-designate are invited to a hearing at the Parliament, where they are questioned by the parliamentary committee(s) dealing with their portfolio.

Although the Parliament can only vote on the Commission as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past often led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced.
