  • Taking into account the elections to the EP
  • (Article 17(7) TEU).
  • This will apply for the first time for the 2014 elections.

This means:

  • Winning party’s candidate will be put forward by the European Council.
  • EP elects this candidate by a majority of MEPs.
  • BUT: the reality may look different: coalitions ? / compromise candidates etc.

  • European political parties should make known their candidate for the Commission presidency.
  • National parties should make known their affiliation to European political parties.
  • Election broadcasts should feature the candidate that party is backing for the Commission presidency.
