    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS The process Article 17 TFEU 7. Taking into account the elections to the European Parliament and after having held the appropriate consultations, the European Council, acting by a qualified majority, shall propose to the European Parliament a candidate for President of the Commission. This candidate shall be elected by the European Parliament by a majority of its component members. If he does not obtain the required majority, the European Council, acting by a qualified majority, shall within one month propose a new candidate who shall be elected by the European Parliament following the same procedure. The Council, by common accord with the President-elect, shall adopt the list of the other persons whom it proposes for appointment as members of the Commission. They shall be selected, on the basis of the suggestions made by Member States, in accordance with the criteria set out in paragraph 3, second subparagraph, and paragraph 5, second subparagraph. The President, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the other members of the Commission shall be subject as a body to a vote of consent by the European Parliament. On the basis of this consent the Commission shall be appointed by the European Council, acting by a qualified majority.
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS The process - continued Declaration 11 on Article 17(6) and (7)of the Treaty on European Union The Conference considers that, in accordance with the provisions of the Treaties, the European Parliament and the European Council are jointly responsible for the smooth running of the process leading to the election of the President of the European Commission. Prior to the decision of the European Council, representatives of the European Parliament and of the European Council will thus conduct the necessary consultations in the framework deemed the most appropriate. These consultations will focus on the backgrounds of the candidates for President of the Commission, taking account of the elections to the European Parliament, in accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 17(7). The arrangements for such consultations may be determined, in due course, by common accord between the European Parliament and the European Council.
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS The people: Commission President (with current positions) • EPP – Enda Kenny, Taoiseach, Ireland – Vivian Reding, Vice President European Commission – Donald Tusk, PM Poland (ruled himself out 10 June 2013) – Jyrki Katainen, PM Finland – Fredrik Reinfeldt, PM Sweden – Dalia Grybauskaitė, President Lithuania – President Barroso • PES – Martin Schultz, President European Parliament – Helle Thorning-Schmitt, PM Denmark – José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero – currently no major position – Pascal Lamy, ex- DG, WTO • ALDE – Guy Verhofstadt, MEP leader ALDE, EP – Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO Secretary General
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS The incoming Commission President • Likely to be selected through a party-based and not ‘member state’ focused negotiation (note Cathy Ashton precedent already, in 2009) • Parliamentary majority will be critical • Will be in strong position to negotiate team with PMs • A more partisan College? • Will unsuccessful candidates seek parliamentary Presidency? • Will incoming President insist on team with gender balance? Ex-MEPs? Reding: “all EU commissioners should be elected to the EP first before being appointed to the Commission” • Portfolios? Reform of Directorates General structure?
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS Other people, other positions? • Radek Sikorski – VPHR (but Eastern European needed for Ban-Ki Moon job) • Carl Bildt (Swedish Foreign Minister) • Kristina Georgiva (Bulgaria – Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid) • ALDE: Verhofstadt – but complicated by Fogh Rasmussen for President of European Council? • European Council – Dk PES government to nominate a Liberal? European Council doesn’t need a nomination – Tusk here perhaps? • Commissioners: Kroes (age 71) for a third term? Lamy? Aubry (or French PM?)? EU/US trade deal – Lamy for trade Commissioner again? • EPP parliamentary group: Barnier to lead? Leave of absence from April 2014; how many other Commissioners on leave of absence (Reding? de Gucht?)? • S+D parliamentary group: Swoboda retiring to national politics – consolation prize for Schultz? • NATO Sec Gen: Fratini/Pieter De Crem (Belgium)/Abdullah Gul (Turkey)?
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS Already intense campaigning – even for positions on lists
    • EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONSEVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNICATIONS Some other issues • Primaries (2019?) - but note Green initiative • Manifestos • Campaigning • Candidatures – the process? What process? • Hearings of Commissioners, September 2014 • Ballot papers – declare European party affiliation? • A single electoral register (2019?)? • Will it all be a flop?
