This online EPC Update will discuss the implications of the vote on the new Commission President in the European Parliament planned for 18 July as well as the wider political landscape at the start of the EU’s new politico-institutional cycle.

What are the implications of the vote on Ursula von der Leyen’s bid for a second term? What will the consequences be if she fails to get a majority? If her nomination is approved, how will this affect the shape and 'tone' of the new Commission, and what impact will the new EU leadership team have on the Union's inter-institutional system? More broadly, how might the parliamentary elections in France, the UK and the US presidential elections coming this November impact the Union’s future and its relationship with key strategic partners? Finally, we will discuss the Hungarian Presidency of the Council so far, particularly after Prime Minister Victor Orbán's trips to Kiev, Moscow and Beijing within days of taking over the presidency.
Participation is open to EPC members only, the media and EU officials.
