About our Ursula von der Leyen news

Latest news on Ursula von der Leyen, the first woman leading the European Commission as President and shaping the future of the 27-nation EU bloc.

Von der Leyen assumed the Commission presidency in 2019 after over 14 years in German government, including as the country's first female Defense Minister. As head of the EU's executive branch, she has driven major policy initiatives like the European Green Deal to combat climate change and the digital transformation across Europe.

In a major development, the European Union's largest political party, the centre-right European People's Party (EPP), has endorsed von der Leyen's bid for a second five-year term as Commission President. This endorsement at the EPP's congress in Bucharest firmly positions her as a frontrunner for re-election ahead of the European Parliament elections in June 2024.

With almost half of EU national leaders being EPP members, von der Leyen's re-nomination still requires approval from member states. But the endorsement is a major boost as she continues steering the bloc through crises like Brexit, COVID-19 and the Ukraine war.
