Ask EP – Insight: New Commission, Ukraine-Russia, Scottish referendum

The election of the new European Commission has been a recurrent subject of interest for citizens in the past months, with the hearings of the Commissioners-designate in particular being a frequent topic. Citizens addressed the European Parliament to strongly express their opinions on the nomination of certain Commissioners-designate. Some complained about the suitability of specific candidates and questioned their qualifications for the job. Others showed their support of individual nominees and advocated that the EP approve the proposed Commission.
