EU health commissioner in waiting says tobacco directive is first priority

| November 23, 2012

Dr. Tonio Borg says that he is looking forward to starting work as European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Affairs, with the tobacco products directive being the first item on his agenda, according to a story by Keith Micallef for the Malta Independent.

The European Parliament on Wednesday approved Borg’s nomination by 386 votes to 281 with 28 abstentions. The European Council was expected to approve the appointment within a matter of days.

Borg is replacing John Dalli who resigned last month.
