but this question of the of gender balance and possibly of east west and south balance which is something she also referred to in some of her remarks before the vote today those are the only sort of contours of the commission that we know so far she was still a bit cagey just now saying well i'm really thought about it yet who are we going to have and you can start naming names of course the member states will be nominating their people and trying to get their people in the right jobs she was also asked will you be having a commissioner for the environment and given that you've said the number one thing you want to do is agree need deal she says she wants to get legislation going on the environment to hit those climate targets within the 1st 100 days in the job and she said well you know maybe we could do that but we thought that far yet so a lot of but i think she showed more generally i think she showed good humor she batted away a couple of questions for instance that one on you know jeremy hunt or
a 0 boris johnson for prime minister batted that away with not answering that but saying that she's ready for this job she's up for it and she's got some ideas that's let's say we can rejoin hoffman back in strasburg. max listening into that press conference on the line and again what it what they will what did you learn from. obviously she's not being very specific yet that has 2 fold reasons 1st of all she needs to you know know who she's going to work with she needs to get up to speed on the different topics tonight is not the night to start a controversy between let's say eastern european countries and central european countries so she's being careful she just said she will work together constructively with with each head of governments because i believe she was asked by a british journalist if she preferred boris johnson or jeremy hunt as prime minister of the united kingdom so you. you can tell she's confronted right away to the e.u.
environment where you have very specific and very different questions from the different countries. now simon young. very much i'm going to mak calls a protege and we are we hearing anything from the german chancellor at this stage we all feel there's a statement has just been released from the chancellor she says and read out to you i'm glad because a persuasive and committed european will become president of the european commission even as i lose a long serving minister again a new partner in brussels and then of course pointing to the fact that these 2 women are close political allies have been for a long time they know each other very well of course they're from the same party as well as being from the same country so you know lines of communication from berlin to brussels are going to be i think particularly smooth for the foreseeable future . so sort of on the line is that to be the new president of a european commission let's round things up often in strasburg what's your big take
away from tonight. but sometimes the majorities are a little closer than you expect don't get carried away if you hear something in the european parliament especially if it's a secret ballot it's so difficult in this european parliament to get a majority and you need to balance it out and you'll lose votes if you give concessions to the left you lose those votes on the right and the other way around it was enough on the law and managed to get that balancing act right but by a very close margin let me recall that she needed 374 votes to get 383 votes so this is a 9 vote majority in a parliament that currently has 747 seats that is not a lot but in the end as it was it often said at her press conference itself a majority is a majority and now the hard part starts. in strasburg and i thank you so much finally were to you simon young your big take away from tonight linus promised the
earth you know in her speech today and in the last few days she's made huge commitments on you know the way that she's going to shape the european union in the years ahead and it'll be interesting to see how much of that she can really keep going how well she can keep all the different factions within the european machine together particularly in view of this slim margin in this vote today although we may come to see this is a real remarkable achievement actually to get over this line given you know how many centrifugal forces there are in the european union right now and i think she'll be a breath of fresh air perhaps off the junk. d w political correspondent simon young thank you for that. so that's the big news of the night germany's are sort of on the line elected as the european commission's
