The PES has selected a candidate for Commission President. That's good news. However, the entire process falls short of the “democratic and transparent process” that was promised


November 6th 2013, with a press release and press conference and rather little fanfare, may nevertheless mark an important step for the future of EU-wide democracy. For it was with this statement that the Party of European Socialists (PES) confirmed that Martin Schulz is 'candidate designate' for Commission President. This means that if the PES and its component parties win the European Parliament elections in 2014 then they will seek to get Schulz as President of the European Commission. The idea is a simple one – to make the direction of the EU's executive, the Commission, reflect the democratic will of the people expressed at the b. llot box.
