EU executive faces risk of new delay as Britain will not name commissioner

“The move is likely to irk European Union partners as the bloc wants a new executive commission to take office on Dec. 1. and under EU rules all member states should field one commissioner” writes Midwest Communications Inc for The new snag caused by Britain’s refusal to name a commissioner could be overcome with a decision by EU states not to apply current rules, but risks of legal challenges remain. The commission is the EU executive arm and holds powers including negotiating international trade deals, policing members states’ finances and proposing EU-wide laws on a range of topics including the environment and migration.
