european-commission-flagFederica Mogherini appointed next EU High Representative: ‘huge challenges’ ahead

01-09-2014

federika-mogerini-1Italy’s Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini has been appointed as the next EU High Representative at a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels on Saturday, succeeding Catherine Ashton, who is due to step down when the term of the current Commission ends on 31 October 2014.

Her role will be to coordinate and develop the EU’s common foreign and security policy and chair the monthly meeting of EU Foreign Ministers. She will also be Vice-President of the European Commission and will ensure the consistency of the Union’s external action. The European External Action Service (EEAS) supports the work of the High Representative.

At a press conference following her nomination Minister Mogherini spoke of the huge challenges in the international situation: “the challenges are huge… all around Europe we have crises – on European soil, in Ukraine, and starting from Iraq and Syria, going to Libya.”

Current EU High Representative Catherine Ashton has congratulated her successor. In a statement, Ashton said: “I would like to congratulate Federica Mogherini on her nomination as the European Union’s next High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the Commission. I wish her every success in taking forward the EU’s external action over the next five years at the head of the European External Action Service.”

Mrs Mogherini’s appointment came at the same time as Polish Prime Minster Donald Tusk was elected to be European Council President, to succeed Herman Van Rompuy.

The High Representative, the Commission President and the other members of the Commission are subject, as a body, to a vote of consent by the European Parliament. On the basis of this consent, the whole Commission will finally be appointed by the European Council.

EU leaders appointed Catherine Ashton as High Representative in November 2009. She is due to step down when the term of the current Commission ends on 31 October 2014. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
