Latvia Changes it Nominee

In a TV discussion over the weekend, Jonathan Evans a conservative MEP was raising the point that the rejection of the commission could lead to a long delay and many problems. The critical issue was, he said, whether the whole commission might start to crumble. It was not clear if MEPs want one head or a few. In addition, two governments have changed since nominations were made and may wish to change their candidates.

All new candidates would then have to be vetted. What happens then if one or more of those are found wanting. Could parliament push this issue so as to garner more power.

Now following the removal of Rocco Buttiglione, Ingrida Udre the Latvian nominee is to be replaced by former government minister, Andris Piebalgs. Will she be followed by any more is the question on everyones lips.

Will the parliament be satisfied or having tasted victory will they want more blood.
