Estonia's candidate to court of auditors to be heard in European Parliament in December ({{commentsTotal}})

Estonia's candidate to the European Court of Auditors Juhan Parts is to be heard in the European Parliament in the first half of December.

"The [European Parliament's] Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) wants to hear Parts on Dec. 5, but a final decision has not been made yet," committee vice-chair MEP Indrek Tarand told BNS on Wednesday.

The CONT plays an important role in assessing the suitability of member states' candidates to the European Court of Auditors. It sends a questionnaire to the candidate and later organizes the candidate's hearing, after which it forms its opinion at a secret vote, after which the candidacy will be discussed and voted on in the plenary session.

The European Parliament's final plenary session of the year is scheduled to take place from Dec. 12-15.

On Oct. 10, the Estonian government decided to nominate Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL) member Juhan Parts as candidate for the Estonian auditor in the European Court of Auditors, replacing now-president Kersti Kaljulaid in the position.

BNS was unable to contact Parts for comment.
