Commission Nominations, January 2018


  • Admin

    It's time once again to start the nomination process for the next commission. All candidates interested should fill out the form below.

    As is traditional, I shall quote the words of our Returning Officer back in January 2011, who opened these nominations thus:

    "These elections are supposed to give our member-states fair representation in this region - if candidates cannot take it upon themselves to be active, then I in particular, question their ability and willingness to take part in a body who must be active, accountable and able. I do not wish to threaten nor scare, but I want, for once, our European Commission to consist of Commissioners who are active and who play a part in the region both on and off this forum."

    Interested candidates should fill out all information below for themselves and their running mates:

    Candidate Name: Gisela Stuart

    Home Nation: Angleter

    Office(s) sought: Premier Commissioner

    Incumbent? (Y/N): N

    Eurogroup Affiliation: European Liberals

    Biography:

    Born in 1955, Gisela worked as a bookseller before studying and then lecturing in law in the 1990s. She was elected to the Angleteric Parliament in 1997 as a member of the Socialist Party, forerunner to the modern-day SDP. A leading moderate in the party, she served in a variety of roles, including Shadow Foreign Secretary between 2005 and 2009, during which time she was instrumental in shifting the party's agenda to the centre and securing its support for Angleter's EU accession. She stepped down as an MP in 2012 to found a non-partisan policy institute, briefly returning to the SDP to lead Sam Courtenay's leadership bid in 2014. In 2015, Courtenay, now Prime Minister, appointed her to serve as Angleter's representative in the European Council, a role she has held ever since. In the Council, Gisela has earned a reputation as a tough scrutineer of legislation, and as someone who advocates an EU that 'does less, more effectively'.
