Reading Time: 1 minute

Green MEPs will oppose Ursula von der Leyen’s nomination to be the next European Commission president in a vote next week, the group said Wednesday evening.

“We did not hear any concrete proposal, be it on rule of law or on climate,” said the group’s co-president Ska Keller, from the German Greens, following a hearing Wednesday. “We have been elected on a mandate for change and we don’t see how change will be possible with this candidate.”
