Selmayr: Tough resolution

Below you find the resolution as voted yesterday and prepared by the services of the Parliament.

MEP Sven Giegold, Parliament’s rapporteur on “transparency, integrity and accountability of EU institutions” commented:

“This is a big blow for the Commission. A large majority calls on the European Commission to reopen the appointment procedure for the Secretary General. At the same time the Parliament acknowledges that this might prove legally difficult. The Parliament calls to organize all appointments in an open and tranparent manner. All the blackmail by Juncker has not stopped the Parliament to adopt a highly critical report and call for tough consequences. Parliamentary control has prevailed over political power play.”
