Kamall on Selmayr appointment: The Commission don’t seem to even realise why this is a problem

Syed Kamall MEP criticises Selmayr appointment

Responding the appointment of Martin Selmayr as Secretary General of the European Commission, Syed Kamall, co-chair of the ECR Group said:

“How does the Commission expect people to believe that the EU is capable of change and listening to the voters, when the process for appointing top positions is so opaque.

“The Commission should be looking at ways to make Brussels more transparent and democratic, yet this appointment resembles nothing more than jobs for the boys.

“Perhaps the most worrying thing about this appointment is that the Commission doesn’t seem to even realise why this is a problem?”
