European Parliament rejects bid to sack Juncker Commission

<p>A <a href="http://www.euronews.com/2014/11/19/eurosceptics-in-bid-to-sack-jean-claude-juncker-s-european-commission/">motion of no-confidence</a> against the newly-installed European Commission has been rejected.</p> <p>‘No’ votes came to 461, while 101 <span class="caps">MEP</span>s voted for sacking the Juncker Commission and 88 abstained.</p> <p>The vote was filed by anti-European parties, in the wake of revelations that President Jean-Claude Juncker’s native Luxembourg attracted multi-nationals with tax breaks. </p> <p>Known as LuxLeaks, the tax-break row is centred around Juncker’s time as prime minister. He denies any wrongdoing. </p> <p>On Thursday (November 27), the European Parliament postponed a decision on whether or not to commission an inquiry into the revelations.</p>
