Setting the Commission's work priorities for 2015
MEPs will discuss the European Commission’s 2015 work programme with its President Jean-Claude Juncker and Vice-president Frans Timmermans on Tuesday afternoon, after its adoption by the College of Commissioners in the morning.
The work programme will show how the Commission plans to give practical effect to the political priorities set out by Mr Juncker in a statement and debate with MEPs before the European Parliament elected him Commission President on 15 July.
The CWP2015 was discussed in a working meeting with all Commissioners on 2 December, where Parliament’s committee chairs highlighted their respective priorities for next year.
The Commission is also expected to announce the possible withdrawal of some pending proposals. EU treaty rules say that so long as the Council has not acted, the Commission may alter its proposal at any time during the procedures leading to the adoption of a Union act (Art. 293(2).
Procedure: Statement by the Commission (without resolution)
Debate: Tuesday, 16 December
Press conference: (tbc)
