Hearing of Karmenu Vella, Member designate of the EC in charge of Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, before the EP

34 views

On 29 September 2014, Karmenu Vella, Member designate of the EC in charge of Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, appeared before the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, and the Committee on Fisheries of the European Parliament for a hearing to test his general competences, European commitment and specific expertise related to his portfolio. Before the beginning of the question and answer session, Karmenu Vella had the opportunity to make an opening statement. After providing written replies to questions from MEPs, the commissioners-designate are invited to a hearing at the Parliament, where they are questioned by the parliamentary committee(s) dealing with their portfolio. Although the Parliament can only vote on the Commission as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past already led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced.
