On 1 October 2014, Miguel Arias Cañete, Member designate of the EC in charge of Climate Action and Energy, appeared before the Committees on Industry, Research and Energy and on 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. Miguel Arias Cañete 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as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past already led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced. Miguel Arias Cañete was a Member of the European Parliament sitting in the Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) in the European Parliament.
