EU Parliament approves Ursula von der Leyens EUROPEAN Commission

A majority in the EUROPEAN Parliament have paved the way for the next EU Commission may take over 1. december.

Ursula von der Leyen, has on Wednesday received the green light from the European Parliament.

The next president of the EUROPEAN Commission and the 26 commissioners can take hold of the work 1. december - a month later than planned.

Von der Leyen, who must stand in the forefront of the EU-Commission without a british member, should use a simple majority vote in the EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

She's got a very robust mandate. 461 of the EU Parliament members voted in favour of the EU Commission, while 157 voted against. Thus, the support greater than that of its predecessor, Jean-Claude Junckers. He's got 423 votes.

the Members of parliament voted on the EU Commission a little after dinner, after the EU Parliament all the morning had discussed the forthcoming EU-Commission plans. At first, Ursula von der Leyen, a keynote speech on his priorities.

It was expected that von der Leyen would secure a majority, since all the candidates had been through a consultation process, and some candidates were eliminated.
