Taking over the European Union's Financial Services, Financial Stability and Capital Markets Union portfolio.
Mrs. Mairead McGuiness has been the vice-president of the European Parliament since 2014 and will bring significant experience to the role. Throughout the years attending the Tullamore Show, Mairead has become a good friend to us.
We send her every best wish in the new role and look forward to seeing her again in the future.
I propose @MaireadMcGMEP as future Commissioner for financial services. She has great qualifications & my full trust for this post. It is now for the EU Parliament to organise the hearings. Executive Vice-President @VDombrovskis will take on the trade portfolio. pic.twitter.com/OwGxwvpBad— Ursula von der Leyen (@vonderleyen) September 8, 2020
