The new appointee is Mr. Pedro Cruz Villalón. His appointment is for the remainder of the term of Mr. Ruiz-Jarabo Colomer which ends on December 6th 2015.
He was appointed on November 30th 2009. That date is significant of course as it was the day before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty. Had he been appointed after that date, the appointment process would have been more complicated as it would have been necessary to have Mr. Cruz Villalón's candidature scrutinized by a special panel as laid down in the new Article 255 TFEU.
Congratulations to Mr. Cruz Villalón.
