Cyprus has designated Androulla Vasiliou, current EU Commissioner for Health.
President Barroso will now proceed with the allocation of portfolios.
”I am pleased to have received nominations from all member states”, he said, adding ”now it is my job to allocate the right portfolios to the right people”.
Barrosso said he looks forward to present a strong Commission team to the European Parliament.
Hearings at the European Parliament will take place in January before the College of Commissioners as a whole will be subject to a vote of approval by the European Parliament.
