 The leaders of the EU’s political groupings on Thursday said the European Parliament would vote on Ursula von der Leyen’s nomination to head the EU Commission on July 16, confirming an earlier plan, a parliament spokesman said.

Concerns over von der Leyen’s chances of obtaining the endorsement of the EU assembly had fed rumours that the vote could have been delayed.
