Wednesday's hearings  

On Wednesday 2 October Didier Reynders (Belgium), Helena Dalli (Malta), Sylvie Goulard (France), Elisa Ferreira (Portugal) and Janez Lenarčič (Slovenia) must prove to MEPs that they are ready to meet all the expectations of the new European Commission.


Before the European Parliament votes the new European Commission, led by Ursula von der Leyen, into office, parliamentary committees will assess the suitability of the commissioners-designate.


Each candidate commissioner is invited to a live-streamed, three-hour hearing in front of the committee or committees responsible for their proposed portfolio. The hearings take place between Monday 30 September and Tuesday 8 October.
