Hearing of Marianne THYSSEN (Belgium), Commissioner-designate for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility: MEPs questions / answers
Event date: 01/10/2014
On 1 October 2014, Marianne Thyssen, Member designate of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, was heard by the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs of the European Parliament for a hearing to test her general competences, European commitment and specific expertise related to her portfolio. Although the Parliament can only vote on the Commission as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past already led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced. Marianne Thyssen was a Member of the European Parliament from 1991 to 10 July 2014 sitting in the Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats).
