During the EP plenary session (12 - 15 March 2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs debate with Günther OETTINGER on the integrity policy of the Commission, in particular the appointment of the EC Secretary-General. Martin Selmayr’s appointment as European Commission Secretary-General on 1 March has drawn criticism from some MEPs, who want answers to questions about the transparency, integrity and accountability of the whole appointment process.
