"Mr President, whilst I would like to congratulate the enlarged Commission, I want again to ask the same fundamental question others here have already referred to. We female citizens of the European Union are worried about the future of gender equality. We know that 14% of the Members from the new Member States here now are women. We do not know how the forthcoming Parliament or the next Commission will be made up, but I imagine I would not be very wrong in predicting that the current female representation of 31% will see a downward turn. How will the Commission ensure that equality remains one of our basic values in the Union? Should there perhaps be a Commissioner for equality during this time of transition and change? As I have been so brief, may I greet and thank the interpreters, whom perhaps we are meeting today for the last time."@en1
