    • 2014: Changing Europe’s Face EU Parliament’s elections 22-25 May 2014 Each member state has its own electoral laws and each one decides on what day its citizens will go to the polls during the four-day election period from 22 to 25 May 2014. The results from all 28 states will be announced on the evening of Sunday 25 May. Election of President of the European Commission 14-17 July 2014 The European Council nominates a candidate to be President of the Commission on 26-27 June. The candidate must be approved by a majority of members of the European Parliament on 14-17 July. If the MEPs reject the candidate, the Council has one month to put forward another. Parliamentary endorsement of College of Commissioners 23-24 October 2014 The president of the European Commission chooses the Commissioners (and their policy area) from candidates put forward by EU countries. The list of Commissioners is then submitted for approval (by qualified majority) first to the Council of Ministers, then to Parliament. If Parliament approves, the new Commission is officially appointed by the Council. New Commission in place 1st November 2014 The new College of Commissioners will take office on 1st November. They will afterwards meet once a week, usually on Wednesday, in Brussels. New President of the European Council in place 1st December 2014 The President of the European Council will be appointed by Heads of State or Government of EU countries during fall 2014.
