Five of six Estonian MEPs supported confirmation of new European Commission


Five of Estonia's six elected MEPs stated ahead of Wednesday's vote that they intended to support the confirmation of the next European Commission in a vote on Wednesday, ERR News portal reports.

"Of course I'm in favor — going headless for an extended period of time is not good for the EU," said MEP Yana Toom (Centre/Renew). "Of course I'd like to complain about what the 'protection of the European way of life' or what exactly the Croatian commissioner's tasks will be, but these arguments won't make anything better. So let's get the Commission into office and focus on working out an adequate agenda with which to move forward. And finally together with an Estonian commissioner."
