The Civil Liberties Committee recommends that Sir Julian King should be appointed as commissioner for Security Union.
An assessment of the candidate's performance by Civil Liberties coordinators will now be passed on the Conference of Presidents. If the hearing process is declared as closed by the Conference of Presidents, the full house will vote on Sir King's candidature on Thursday.
Civil Liberties MEPs are content that the candidate has the necessary competence and determination to do the job. They were also satisfied that Sir King would act as a guardian of the treaties and in the best interest of the EU, should he be appointed commissioner for the Security Union.
