"He is not a green candidate in that traditional sense," she told journalists in Brussels on Wednesday, adding, however, that she formed a very good opinion about the Lithuanian candidate during the hearings in the European Parliament.

"We think he has a very good presentation, has very good ideas," the German politician said.

Sinkevicius represents the ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union which is not a member of the European Green Party but the LFGU's representatives work in the EGP political group in the EP.

The European Parliament is yet to endorse the whole composition of the new European Commission, led by German Ursula von der Leyen, which is set to start working in December.
