Britain has said it does not want to halt measures to form a new European commission because it has not nominated a new commissioner before next month’s British general election.

“We have defined our position on the European Union on several occasions, including our first speech”, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said. “The UK will not intend or want to stop the EU’s procedures for a commission”.

The statement comes after the European Commission noted, earlier, that London did not respond to a letter sent by the Commission on the non-nomination of a commissioner before the expiry of the deadline, which was set for midnight last Friday.

The refusal of London raised fears of further delay to start the commission presidency of Ursula von der Leyen, noting that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson refused to choose a candidate for his country, based on the first exit of London from the bloc, and secondly to the elections scheduled for Britain on 12 December.

European Commission is supposed to be made up of a senior official from the EU’s 28 member states, and the bloc’s deputies are expected to approve the formation in a vote on Wednesday.
