I have to wonder, is there any point in having the power to approve the Commission President if it will always be an "institutional crisis" if it is actually used to reject a candidate for once?

What's it like to be a parliamentarian aged 21? We asked Denmark's Kira Peter-Hansen (), the youngest MEP ever. Representing the Greens, she was still studying at university when she got elected.

MEPs must insist on a binding agreement on key reforms: this *must* include an agreement on a democratic update of the process.

No! The Council has only agreed on its proposal. It is the Parliament's prerogative to decide about the Presidents of the Commission and of the Parliament. Your announcement is an arrogant appropriation of power. Parliamentarians need to defend European democracy now!

Time for the European Parliament to show what it's made of. It has the full right to reject , and it should do so.

If Timmermans becomes President: Orbán & co are angry If von der Leyen becomes President: European Parliament are angry Whom does value more? The naughty kids in class, or the democratically elected EU institution?

Europe, o Europe. This is extremely distressing.... you have a public procedure for months, with real candidates. But then you just succumb to illiberal pressures in the last hour & put a few friends forward. If you wish to lose citizens, this is the way

Cette "fossilisation" qu'on a vue hier est précisément à cause du fait que l' est une institution non-fédéralisée. Normalement quand on témoigne de l'indécision au sein de l'UE, c'est au sein des institutions intergouvernementales

Kinda random but I realised that a week before the elections in , Tsipras is sitting at on three back to back days because they couldn't find an agreement. Bet he might have other things to think about than

Fair point. I think the EP messed up by not being able to come together behind a candidate before the summits. They failed to make the first move even though they had a chance

Imagine if it had been the Parliament all along who decided on the Commission President. Would probably have voted on Weber first and rejected him, then given a second go to Timmermans. Same outcome as in , but more transparent, and not in the middle of the night.

Still no white smoke . No other major democracy in the world has such a bizarre and arcane method for chosing its political leadership. Over 200 million people have voted, but 28 individuals withdraw behind closed doors and play musical chairs. EU needs democratic reforms!
