TODAY IS THE DAY! The next European Commission president is waiting for your thoughts on #ClimateEmergency, #populism, #migration, #austerity, #Brexit & more. Just tweet your question using #TellEurope and tune in at 21:00 CEST as #EUElections2019 fever mounts.
Each europarty nominates a candidate for the post of President of the European Commission prior to the European Parliamentary elections. The party which obtains the most seats in the European Parliament gets the first chance of having their candidate nominated by the 28 member state leaders in the European Council for the role. The European Parliament then must formally elect the candidate by a majority of its members. If the candidate fails to get a majority then the European Council nominates the candidate from the runner up party, after consulting with the European Parliament, and so on.
