EU Council adopts new list of Commissioner candidates

The Council today adopted a new list of persons whom it proposes for appointment as members of the Commission until 31 October 2024.

This paves the way for the vote of consent in the European Parliament on the entire Commission as a body.

Under Article 17(7) of the Treaty on European Union, the list of Commissioners-designate is adopted by the Council by common accord with the President‑elect of the Commission. President-elect Ursula von der Leyen gave her agreement to the draft list on 21 November.

Great Britain is represented in the new list.
