EU Commission appointee von der Leyen to seek parliament approval

STRASBOURG, July 3 (Reuters) - German Ursula von der Leyen, appointed by European Union leaders as the next head of the bloc’s executive, will attend later on Wednesday a session of the European Parliament, the approval of which she needs to take on the job.

An official with the assembly’s largest faction, the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP), said von der Leyen would be in the parliament - sitting in the French city of Strasbourg - on Wednesday afternoon and attend the group’s meeting at 1300 GMT.
