–  having regard to Rule 122a of its Rules of Procedure,

–  having regard to the report of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (A8-0146/2019),

A.  whereas Article 48(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 provides that the Chairperson of the European Banking Authority is to be appointed on the basis of merit, skills, knowledge of financial institutions and markets, and of experience relevant to financial supervision and regulation, following an open selection procedure;

D.  whereas on 19 February 2019, the Board of Supervisors of the European Banking Authority selected José Manuel Campa as Chairperson of the Authority and informed Parliament accordingly;
