Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
with a new Commission due to be appointed in the next few weeks and not taking office until November

Thanks. Worded badly. I was also thinking of other key appointments like President of the Council, Parliament, ECB etc. I will amend to weeks/months
