Letters by President Sassoli to Commission President-elect von der Leyen

EP President Sassoli sent two letters on Monday to Commission President-elect von der Leyen regarding the Legal Affairs Committee’s decision on two Commissioners-designate.

European Parliament President David Sassoli has sent two letters to the President-elect of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen today to inform her that the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee has voted to declare Commissioners-designate László Trócsányi and Rovana Plumb unable to exercise their functions, on the grounds of conflicts of interest found when their declarations of financial interests were examined.

Until President-elect von der Leyen has communicated to the Parliament what further steps she intends to take, the hearings for the Romanian and Hungarian Commissioners-designate will be suspended.
