Dubrovnik born and raised politician and current MEP, Dubravka Suice, has been confirmed as the new Commissioner in the new European Commission.

The Croatian prime Minster, Andrej Plenkovic, confirmed yesterday that Suica was the government’s nomination for this leading European position.

"Following internal consultations and talks with the new EC President Ursula von der Leyen, we are going to make the decision at tomorrow's meeting of the inner cabinet that we nominate Dubravka Suica for our new member of the European Commission," commented Plenkovic.

A Croatian member of the European Parliament, Dubravka Suica, has been elected to the EP three times, and her first election of a Croatian MEP was in 2013 when Croatia joined the Union. She was re-elected in 2014 and in 2019.

The nominated commissioners proposed by EC President Ursula von der Leyen are to be confirmed by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.
