Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's no formal procedure. Most times, there will be some haggling behind closed doors and after it's clear who will become the candidate, he gets crowned at a party convention (in the spring of 2009 probably).
If there are two guys who won't compromise, the party delegates at the convention decide by voting, but I can't remember that has ever happened.
