European citizens want change. In May, people sent us a strong message. We are listening and we are ready to respond. With 9 Commissioners, the S&D team will be the leading force in the Commission over the next five years.
As the president of the S&D Group in the European Parliament, I sent a letter to the Commission president-elect in July on behalf of our political family. We were, and we continue to be, very demanding of the political agenda of the next Commission. Our citizens expect us to build a Europe based on equality, solidarity, sustainability and social justice. You can read about our demands in more detail on this page. With the S&D team leading the way with the new Commission and working together with progressive MEPs, we can bring about the change that Europe needs.

S&D Group President
During the November plenary session, Parliament voted the new Commission into office. The new commissioners can now start their mandate to bring about change in Europe.
