MEPs preparing questions for the commissioners-designate
EUobserver questions whether some of the new commissioners are going to be rejected during the European Parliament hearing. The commissioner-designate for Education, Culture, Youth and Citizenship, Hungary’s former Foreign Affairs Minister Tibor Navracsics, might face tough questions, considering the situation of civil society in Hungary. Among other things, MEPs ask him in written form how he is planning to develop European citizenship while taking fully into account the Charter on Fundamental Rights and which concrete measures he is going to take in order to promote civic participation and democratic involvement. You can find the agenda and watch the hearings online on the website of the European Parliament. EUCIS-LLL has also prepared a series of key questions it wants to ask the commissioner-designate.
