Although consensus decisions on the letter concerning the respective candidate is the norm, every political group can demand a vote in the responsible committee. If a vote in a committee is needed that cannot take place today. A date has not been fixed yet but could already by this Wednesday.

As soon as committees concerned have agreed on their response to the candidates, the conference of presidents prepare the ultimate vote on the Commission as a whole in the plenary. Between these steps negotations with Juncker on changes in the design of the Commission are likely.
