So @vonderleyen demanded a gender balanced European Commission

How's it looking among the nominees, after Slovenia proposed Janez Lenarčič today?

So far: 9 🙍‍♂️, 5 🙍‍♀️

Politico has a summary here:…
So far 🙍‍♂️
Timmermans 🇳🇱
Dombrovskis 🇱🇻
Hahn 🇦🇹
Hogan 🇮🇪
Šefčovič 🇸🇰
Borrell 🇪🇸
Schmit 🇱🇺
Trócsányi 🇭🇺
Lenarčič 🇸🇮

So far 🙍‍♀️
Gabriel 🇧🇬
Vestager 🇩🇰
Simson 🇪🇪
von der Leyen 🇩🇪
Urpilainen 🇫🇮
Rumoured 🙍‍♂️
Marques 🇵🇹

Rumoured 🙍‍♀️
Jourová 🇨🇿
If all that comes to pass it's 10-6, with 12 still to nominate.

That means max 4 🙍‍♂️ from:

Good luck!

No, it's more complex...

🇮🇹 will propose 🙍‍♂️ Giancarlo Giorgetti (thanks @euro_jonathan)…

So vdL now needs max 3 🙍‍♂️ from:

Who's nominee is going to get knocked back?
@euro_jonathan Aaaand it gets even more complex...

🇬🇷 proposing 🙍‍♂️ @MargSchinas

So vdL now needs max 2 more 🙍‍♂️ from these 10 countries!

I reckon a gender balanced Commission will be her first broken promise.
@euro_jonathan @MargSchinas And, in von der Leyen's first week, we're almost there that she's going to break a promise

🇧🇪 will send @dreynders or Kris Peeters (both 🙍‍♂️)

So only 1 of these can send a 🙍‍♂️!

Good luck vdL!
