European Union merits new kudos for keeping old antitrust tsar

Bulgaria Mariya Gabriel Nominated to be European Commissioner For Innovation and Youth

The new European Union commission seems made a decision to give a greater deal of importance to climate action in the next five years since this portfolio was assigned to one of three executive vice-presidents.

In an implicit warning to Brexit supporters in the United Kingdom arguing for a so-called "clean break" departure with no deal in place, incoming EC president Ursula von der Leyen said the two sides would have to work to build up ties anew.

If approved by the European Parliament, Mrs. von der Leyen's executive team will be the most gender-diverse in EU history, with 13 women and 14 men. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time. "Ursula von der Leyen's proposal to entrust Hahn with the European Union budget in the midst of the ongoing negotiations on the multiannual financial framework is already an honour and shows great confidence", said the President of the National Council.

Commenting on the appointment of the former EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development to his new role as EU Trade Commissioner, Healy said: "It is vital that we have a strong voice at the EU Commission table, particularly with the Brexit threat looming. We need protection for our democracy, against climate change etc - not against migrants!"

FIRE PLAN: Bushfire season ignites early
Since Thursday in Queensland , more than 20 structures-including 15 houses-have been destroyed, with that number expected to rise. Up to 650 firefighters are now deployed across the state and 27 aircraft are being used to drop water from above.

He has accused pro-Brexit politicians of lying, Britain's parliament of absurdist politics and described Brexit as a "utopia" that existed only in the pages of the ruling Conservative Party's election manifesto. "We sought a major economic brief in the new European Commission, and I am very satisfied that we have secured it". "I am excited to work on this for the next five years and looking forward to my hearing in the European parliament to discuss how we plan to build a clean and sustainable European economy that leaves nobody behind".

The third executive vice president, Frans Timmermans, responsible for justice and the rule of law in the current commission, a position which often placed him in conflict with the governments of Hungary, Poland and Romania, will manage the EU's climate action policy and the so-called European Green Deal.

Von der Leyen spent the last couple of weeks interviewing and vetting a list of candidates whose names were confirmed on Monday, though not their commission posts.
