brussels - The 'flash appointment' of the new Secretary-General of the European Commission at the beginning of this year indicates maladministration. In this way an 'artificial sense of urgency \u0026 # x27; stepped up to not have to deregister a vacancy. The commission must develop a new procedure for future appointments, according to the European Ombudsman Emily O'Reilly.

She writes that in her report after complaints about the controversial appointment of the German Martin Selmayr as the highest official of the EU's daily management. He succeeded the Dutchman Alexander Italianer on 1 March because he unexpectedly retired. Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker then arranged for the promotion of his Chief of Staff Selmayr as Deputy Secretary-General and to Secretary General in one effort.

MEP Sophie in 't Veld (D66): ' The Ombudsman's conclusions are devastating. It was an absolute sham procedure. ''

According to the Ombudsman, the commission has put the trust of the public in jeopardy with its course of action. 'The college of commissioners is collectively responsible for this mismanagement. It is strange that no commissioner has contested this course of events. 'She does not direct the reversal of Selmayr's appointment because the investigation was not about his suitability.

In 't Veld is curious how the new procedure for future appointments will come about. ' I would like to know how the committee will deal with this. After all, the design is in the hands of Selmayr himself. '
