Event date: 20/10/2014
On 20 October 2014, Maroš Šefčovič, vice-président désigné de la CE chargé de L'Union de l'Énergie, appeared before the Committees on Industry, Research and Energy, and on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety of the European Parliament for a hearing to test his general competences, European commitment and specific expertise related to his portfolio. Maroš Šefčovič had the opportunity to make an opening statement, he took part to a question and answer session and made a closing statement. 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as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past already led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced. In the outgoing Commission, Maroš Šefčovič was in charge of Inter-Institutional Relations and Administration.
