Newly elected European Parliament maintains full support for Romanian Laura Codruța Kovesi’s candidacy for the position of European Chief Prosecutor, the EP announced on 18 July in a press release.

EP President, David Sassoli, in a letter addressed to the Council of the EU, at the request of the Conference of Presidents:"Ahead of the informal meeting of the Justice and Home Affairs Ministers in Helsinki, the Parliament wishes to renew its commitment to Laura Codruţa Kövesi as the European Parliament's candidate for European Chief Prosecutor. It is key that the investigation and prosecution of alleged crimes against the EU budget, such as fraud, corruption or cross-border VAT fraud be ensured as quickly as possible".

According to Article 14 of the Regulation establishing the European Public Prosecutor's Office, "The European Parliament and the Council shall appoint by common accord the European Chief Prosecutor for a non-renewable term of 7 years. The Council shall act by simple majority". The appointment of the European Chief Prosecutor is a co-decision of the EP and the Council.

In EP’s previous term, Civil Liberties Committee and Budget Control Committee heard the three candidates shortlisted by a selection panel: Jean-François Bohnert from France, Laura Codruţa Kövesi from Romania and Andres Ritter from Germany. After this, both committees selected Laura Codruţa Kövesi as their choice.
