#SelmayrGate spirals into European Parliament plenary

Martin Selmayr’s astonishing power grab to unexpectedly become the new Secretary General of the European Commission has attracted headlines all around Brussels. The ALDE Group First Vice President Sophie in ’t Veld MEP called on President Juncker to reverse the decision and asked the EU ombudsman to investigate the matter without delay:

This debate is not about staff policy, it is about the total lack of political judgement of this Commission.... Selmayrgate destroys all the credibility of the European Union as a champion of integrity and transparency in public administration.”
