4:04 pm
friend of eva she's funny but psychopath and she is a committed european and that's why we will pursue our goals together with her she has the european people's party firm support and our vote just it seems that. a number of europe social democrats have also given her their blessing but the far right and the far left criticized her speech calling it a bouquet of empty promises she will need the majority of votes in a secret ballot set for this evening. joining me now is the brussels bureau chief he's at the european parliament in strasbourg let's find out why pressed all the right buttons during a speech there was something for everyone how did it address go down there. well because indeed she did have the right triggers and she had a good way of mixing it with her personal story introduction i am a woman this is a historic chance also stressing the fact that she has 7 kids which ment's are more
4:05 pm
approachable and in the end telling a story about her father this mix seemed to have worked quite well with the m.v.p.'s we talked to of course not on the far right but the ones that are essential here are the social democrats because they're the one who put her over the hump and the feedback we've been hearing from most allegations so far is quite positive there's one notable exception though the german delegation's so it was enough on the nine's own country the s.p.d. the ones that are in the same coalition as her party still saying we're not going to vote for one of them was also very strong. all of the need to tackle climate change the one other greens impressed because they had said earlier they would be voting against. it there's a certain irony to that because the greens were the party to reject. as the 1st party last week they matter they grilled her for over an hour and then they were
4:06 pm
very quick to release a press release saying we're not going to vote for this is just not enough and i had the feeling that some of them at least regretted that decision a little bit today because as you said the speech was very climate protection heavy and see she said in theory all the right things for the green party by the way i talked to one of their members from belgium. this is what she had to say. mr souter kind of sounded like it was enough to still hoping that some greens will vote for her she emphasized climate protection a lot was not something you liked yes but of course where still worried stat these are just words and no binding action will follow from that there was a lot of conditions put to that sound as an example last week when we talked about c o 2 reductions in 2030. and the goal to reach minus 55 percent which was agreed by the parliament not as
4:07 pm
a goal that she shares when she's still hesitating on that she said well maybe we should go to minus 50 and then in 2021 see how we can proceed even furder so you see that her her position shifts from day to day. and what we heard now is much better than what we heard in the hearing that we had last week for sure but it's not yet convincing to give our full support to her hold on we have still a full day of debate with her because she just delivered so the introductory speech and now the debate is ongoing and then we will have group meetings to discuss our position it is my feeling that my group will not give full. support the word tonights no but you think like this sounds like you are considering giving her your vote i didn't say that we'll still have a full days of debates you're not excluding it i'm not excluding anything it can be supported can be abstention it can be a negative for all to see tonight what happens when we have you know the whole
4:08 pm
debate and all the elements that we need on certain elements she has progressed she did her homework she listened to us and she definitely wants the vote of the s. and d. group that's clear and social democrats but she probably will get them she will lose the one such extreme right because she said some things about migration and about nationalism that definitely will not be accepted from that side and that is good because we were afraid that she would lose the left side of the parliament and get the votes at the right and extreme right side which of course creates you know some some dependence from that groups so no she's a she's shifting more to the left even more than her own political family has ever done because she did she does this a few things that were not really the position of the people. so much as me how to use this green man but keeping all their options open as to how she's going to vote and what the big issues that among the deputies is that or is it up on the line it
4:09 pm
was not the so what do you need candidate for this post tell us about this controversy and its implications. yes specially the greens and the social democrats were almost well hurt because they were all in regarding this league candidate principle something that was born 5 years ago we have to make sure that everybody understands this is not part of the european treaties there's no legislation behind it it was sort of a convention that was born 5 years ago that only the ones of the candidates that were really on the campaign trail and the really the ones that fought to be elected could also be nominated later as president of the e.u. commission the goal behind it was to give these candidates more more legitimacy and make sure that the citizens of the european union have their say in this but this time the european parliament failed to gather a majority behind one of those lead candidates including by the way the social democratic candidate funds to moments from from the from the netherlands so by not
4:10 pm
agreeing on one of those candidates after the elections they basically handed over the power of this process to the leaders so the representatives the heads of state government of the member states and they came up with a line and that still makes some of the m.e. piece here quite mad we have to see how this plays out of course when the vote takes place but finding that and also press the point about being the 1st woman to hold this post if she is elected how did that visit with people into. it's a stuart and i would say most m.p.'s at least the ones we talk to think it's a good thing and of course then you have some who think it's absolutely brilliant who fought for gender equality during their whole political career just to mention one example of erotic garcia perez who is the head of the social democratic group here in the e.u. parliament she's a feminist she's fought for general quality and so even though it was a is
4:11 pm
a member of the conservative party. garciaparra stood up after her speech and gave her standing ovations as the group leader of the social democrats so that shows you the direction that the s. and d. group the social democrats will probably go into at the end of this day so walk us through what happens for the rest of the day and render we actually have a result. member of the conservative party told me earlier she can start planning her victory party now because the feeling really is that she's going to make it there are some meetings of the political groups this afternoon where they will give their official recommendations whether to vote for. or not social democrats at 4 o'clock this afternoon until about 6 o'clock this afternoon and at 6 o'clock we have the official secret ballot so a secret vote will take there are times to count those votes because they want to make sure they get it right especially if it's close so we do expect official
