EU opinion & policy debates - across languages |

In December 2010, at the PES Council, it was decided that the European socialists and social-democrats will select the candidate for the European Commission Presidency through a democratic and transparent process. Therefore the PES Council will set up a Working Group “Candidate 2014“ to discuss and propose a process until the end of the year. 2011 is the crucial year for the development of such mechanism. The PES Council 2011 will adopt at the end of the year the criteria to stand as a candidate, including proposals for endorsement and the selection procedure.
