Ursula von der Leyen met on 8 July with Ska Keller and Philippe Lamberts, the co-chairs of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, as she tries to secure the wider support of the European Parliament ahead of next week’s vote on her Commission president candidacy by talking with senior MEPs.
During their meeting, they set as conditions for her election a genuine commitment to climate protection, sea rescue in the Mediterranean and a revamping of the lead candidate election process.
“It’s a huge step backwards for European democracy to have someone nominated who hasn’t been campaigning and hasn’t been a lead candidate.”, Keller said after the meeting with von der Leyen.
“Ursula von der Leyen came to meet us with plenty of goodwill, but when the house is burning goodwill is simply not enough”, said Philippe Lamberts.
