European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will deliver her keynote address on the State of the European Union on Wednesday (9:00 am).
It is expected to comment on the situation in Ukraine and provide emergency measures against rising energy prices. In addition, she is likely to outline her further plans for next year at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The President of the European Commission delivers the State of the Union address every year in September.
Planned subsequent discussion
It is based on the State of the Union address, which is considered one of the most important speeches of the American President. A discussion with MEPs is scheduled to follow up on von der Leyen’s speech. This is the third speech of its kind by von der Leyen, as the German has held the presidency of the European Commission since December 1, 2019.
The body’s tasks include submitting proposals for new EU laws and ensuring compliance with European treaties. To ensure compliance with EU law, it can, for example, file complaints against member states before the European Court of Justice.
