Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: I'd like the commissioners to be free. I haven't asked them to be obedient
22 October 2014 09:12
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: #Barroso's Commission succeeded to incorporate 13 new member states of the EU. He did a really good job and was criticised in a way that I find embarassing
22 October 2014 09:15
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: In July I promised you to create a political Commission. All members of the College have done responsible tasks in their own countries. We have many former prime ministers, ex-foreign ministers, ex-commissioners. Their careers underscore the fact that the Commission needs to be a political body
22 October 2014 09:17
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: I hope that Frans Timmermans will be not only my right hand but from time to time my left hand either
22 October 2014 09:18
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: I asked those who were prime ministers to take the vice president posts because they know best how coordination goes in a government
22 October 2014 09:20
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: The vice president for the euro and social dialogue should coordinate all the others in the economic team. The European semester and the country-specific recommendations should take into account the social dimension when building a social and economic union (applause)
22 October 2014 09:26
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: Only 2 euro area countries have remained with triple A credit rating - Germany and Luxembourg and for the latter I'm not sure for how long. But I'd like not only that all member states return their triple A rating but also a triple A social rating (applause)
22 October 2014 09:28
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: We have 9 female commissioners just as many as in Barroso's commission. I had to fight this. In the end of July I had only 3 female proposals and I had to turn down many male nominations. I wouldn't tell you which governments did that but 9 women out of 28 commissioners is pathetic (applause)
22 October 2014 09:32
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker regretted that Luxembourg didn't propose a male candidate. Responding to a reaction from the house Juncker said he had no intention in the short-term to change his sex but in the longer term it was not certain
22 October 2014 09:34
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: I followed very closely the hearings in the parliamentary committees
22 October 2014 09:37
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: No investor will have a special treatment under the #TTIP. The rule of law should apply in this area too. The negotiations mandate with the US is open. Frans Timmermans will advise me on this issue
22 October 2014 09:40
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: The 300 billion euros investment package is very close to my heart. I'll not give up on it but it shouldn't leave behind new debt
22 October 2014 09:43
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: We need targeted investments not just handing out money
22 October 2014 09:44
Adelina Marini #Ephearings2014 #Juncker: I'll abide to the Stability and Growth Pact. The rules will not be changed. All heads of state or government should ensure that they will not be changed
22 October 2014 09:46
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: There can be no flexibility if there are no structural reforms
22 October 2014 09:47
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: After a thorough debate, first with myself, I decided to keep the name of the portfolio "Neighbourhood policy and Enlargement negotiations" because I don't want to delude the candidate countries that they can become members in the coming 5 years
22 October 2014 09:50
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: We should've acted earlier to prevent the #Ebola outbreak
22 October 2014 09:53
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: The intergovernmental approach has its virtues in urgent matters but I hope that this Parliament will work for rediscovery of the community method
22 October 2014 09:54
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: In 2019, the election campaign will be a genuine European campaign
22 October 2014 09:55
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker: The increase of democracy in Europe is not the end of the nation states. The member states have the wealth of their history but we're building Europe on the basis of good will
22 October 2014 09:57
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Juncker's opening statement, which lasted more than 40 minutes, was loudly and continuously applauded by a full house plenary in Strasbourg
22 October 2014 10:00
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 @giannipittella (S&D): Today, the biggest threat isn't populism but the lack of courage
22 October 2014 10:06
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Gianni #Pittella: We propose part of the bailout fund to be transferred to the EIB
22 October 2014 10:07
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Syed Kamall (ECr): We have to ensure that we have learnt the lesson that we can't spend more than we have
22 October 2014 10:11
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Syed Kamall (ECR): We welcome that the structure doesn't seems just to find a job for all the 28 candidates. We like that you're trying to cut red tape, complete the single market. We're impressed by some appointments, specifically Mr Timmermans. According to some of our group, you've offered an olive branch to us and we're looking forward to working with you. But we're also disappointed that you didn't accept our demand for a budget control commissioner. The appointment of Moscovici is a mistake
22 October 2014 10:15
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Syed #Kamall (ECr): We'll abstain during the vote
22 October 2014 10:16
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Guy #Verhofstadt (ALDE): We should put an end to this stupid debate - fiscal discipline or investments. One is impossible without the other
22 October 2014 10:17
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Verhofstadt: It's good that you've removed the citizenship from #Navracsics's portfolio but this doesn't solve the problem
22 October 2014 10:20
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Verhofstadt: This Commission is not only for economic work but for European values as well
22 October 2014 10:21
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Neoklis Sylikiotis (GUE): I'm afraid this Commission will continue the neoliberal line. This Commission is the product of a deal between the S&D, EPP and ALDE
22 October 2014 10:24
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 The far left said they would vote against the new College
22 October 2014 10:24
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 The Greens, too, said they would vote against the new College
22 October 2014 10:25
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Rebecca #Harms: In your presentation, Mr Juncker, there was no mention at all of sustainable development. Thats why we'll vote NO
22 October 2014 10:27
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Nigel #Farage: The community approach is the very enemy of democracy
22 October 2014 10:31
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Farage: Our group will vote against this Commission because it is anti-democratic
22 October 2014 10:32
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 #Farage: This is the last Commission that'll vote Britain because in five years we'll be out of the EU
22 October 2014 10:32
Adelina Marini Herbert REUL (EPP): The Greens and the far left expect the new Commission to accept their policies 100%
22 October 2014 10:34
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Sophia IN 'T VELD (ALDE): We'll support you today but this doesn't mean a blank check for the next 5 years
22 October 2014 10:41
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Sophia IN 'T VELD: The values are not a side issue but the core of the EU. I expect initiatives for stronger instruments for promotion and protection of democracy, the rule of law and the fundamental rights. I expect Mr Timmermans to be relentless to countries that violate them
22 October 2014 10:43
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Marisa Matias (GUE, #Portugal): The European Council has completely taken over the Commission
22 October 2014 10:58
Adelina Marini #EPhearings2014 Matteo SALVINI (non-attached): Mr Juncker, you have participated actively in the past 25 years, taking various posts, for the current economic disaster
