Pentus-Rosimannus European Court of Auditors (ECA) hearing set for November 8.
European Court of Auditors (ECA) representative from Estonia has been set for November 8.
Pentus-Rosimannus, who formally resigned as minister on Tuesday, had already sent off her written answers to 19 questions, a standard format, on her past experience, activities, background and achievements, and will now face on-the-spot questioning from the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgetary Control.
While both the committee and a plenary session of the European Parliament will vote on Pentus-Rosimannus’ suitability, the result is non-binding and her appointment ultimately depends on the executive, the 27-Member State Council of the EU.
