European Parliament elected Ursula von der Leyen from Germany as the first female President of the next European Commission for a five-year term from November 01, 2019.
Out of the 733 votes cast, one was not valid while 383 members voted in favor, 327 against, and 22 abstained. The President-elect of EC will now send official letters to the member states' heads of state or government, inviting them to propose their candidates for members of EC. Hearings of the nominees in Parliament’s competent committees are scheduled to take place from September 30 to October 08. The full college of Commissioners then needs to be elected by Parliament, most likely in the October 21-24 session.
