What portfolios target Romania in the new EC

The names rumoured in PSD for a EC Commissioner with full mandate are Rovana Plumb, Dan Nica and Mircea Geoana, although the latter, proposed for the Neighbourhood Policy would not have the necessary endorsement. However, Romania’s chances to get this portfolio of Neighbourhood Policy are minor, as the current debates within the EU do not favour a new member of the EU and a border state like Romania to obtain this seat.

The same sources revealed that neither the Commissioner for Transports is in cards for Romania.

The Energy Portfolio is most likely to be allocated to Romania, but it is possible that the European Commissioner for Energy will work under the coordination of a European Commission Vice-President in this field.

Rovana Plumb would have the best chance of becoming a European commissioner, but no name will be decided without consulting President Klaus Iohannis.

Ursula von der Leyen, proposed to take over the helm of the European Commission, is to face to European Parliament’s vote in mid-July. After that the commissioner portfolios will be assigned.
