ZAGREB, August 22, 2019 – Future member of the European Commission, MEP Dubravka Šuica (HDZ-EPP), on Thursday presented herself to the European Affairs parliamentary committee, just a few hours after the government confirmed her nomination for Croatia’s candidate for the EC led by Ursula von der Leyen.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, who also attended the meeting, described her as a “good candidate with a wealth of experience in international affairs.”

“She has a lot of experience. This is her third term in the European Parliament. She was a Member of Parliament and Mayor of Dubrovnik.”

He added that portfolios in the next EC are still not being discussed publicly yet however, Croatia has hinted which one it would like for Šuica.

“We are conducting intensive talks with the head of the European Commission however, allow another two to three weeks for her to make her decision,” Plenković said.

Šuica too underscored that she has a lot of experience and added that she would in particular advocate Croatia’s accession to the Schengen Area.
