Buzek: EP Should Vote on Barroso in September

Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Parliament, has called for a vote on the candidacy of Jose Manuel Barroso for President of the European Commission in September. Mr. Buzek says the best date is 16 September.

The leader of the Liberals in EP, Mr. Guy Verhofstadt, outlines three scenarios for the vote – approval, outright rejection, or delay of approval. Mr. Verhofstadt acknowledges that a rejection of Mr. Barroso’s candidacy can affect the results of the Irish referendum on the Treaty of Lisbon.
