Plenary session of the Committee of the Regions: election of Luc van den Brande and extracts of the statement by José Manuel Barroso

51 views

The Committee of the Regions elected Luc van den Brande as new President to serve for the second half of its current four-year term, which runs to February 2010. During this first plenary session of the year, members also elected the CoR's new First Vice-President, Michel Delebarre, 27 Vice-Presidents of the national delegations and other members of the Bureau. The election of Luc van den Brande, Belgian senator and Former Minister-President of Flanders and Member of the Flemish Parliament, is the result of an agreement between the CoR's political groups to divide the whole mandate between EPP Van den Brande and PES Michel Delebarre, who put an end to his task. European Commission President, José Manuel Barroso, addressed the members. He spoke about the importance of maintaining strong ties between the Commission and the CoR, particularly in terms of reinforcing the involvement of regions and cities in the policy areas where they can make the biggest impact: delivery of the climate change action, jobs and growth, and communication for the Lisbon Treaty.
