Poland's pick for EU commissioner given green light

Janusz Wojciechowski was questioned on Tuesday for the second time by Euro-deputies gauging whether he was an appropriate candidate for the key role in the EU’s executive.

During his first hearing last week Wojciechowski failed to impress, with MEPs complaining that his comments were too vague and his performance in communicating his message too poor, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

At his second hearing Wojciechowski gave up on speaking English and switched to Polish instead, IAR added.

A new team of European Commissioners headed by Germany’s Ursula von der Leyen needs approval from the European Parliament as a whole before the nominees can take up their posts. The vote is scheduled for October 23.

Polish government spokesman Piotr Mueller told reporters in August that Wojciechowski would make a good agriculture commissioner because of his many years of experience as a EuroMP and a member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Agriculture.
