FEPS paper on selecting PES candidate
Dr Ania Skrzypek, Policy Adviser with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), has written a fascinating academic article on the options available to the PES for the nomination and selection of a candidate for the Presidency of the European Commission in 2014.
The article examines a number of options for selecting a PES candidate for Commission President, including slecting the PES President ex-officio, having the PES Presidency (it's executive body) decide, leaving the decision to national party leaders and officials or opening the selection process to all members of PES parties by holding primary elections.
Ania's paper is available here.
