Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So who will have trouble in the EP hearings?

  • I hope Oettinger will.

  • The Research and Innovation portfolio was spared of Mr. Empty Suit Johannes Hahn, but he may not be better suited for Regional Policy either, and what does former justice minister Maire Geoghegan-Quinn have to do with R&D?

  • Janez Potočnik has nothing to do with Environment, either, even if good at European affairs and economics. (But this was the situation with his predecessor already... whom the then EP let pass.)

I am also curious about Berlusconi's current candidate, Tajani. Anything we know about him beyond the rather bland Wikipedia article? De Gondi?
