BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Former French finance minister Pierre Moscovici was endorsed on Wednesday by the European Parliament to serve in the key post of economic affairs commissioners, lawmakers said after a vote in committee. Members of the committee tweeted that Moscovici, a Socialist, had won a vote on his competence for that specific role by 32-15. Earlier, members had given slightly different figures. Moscovici was backed 44-12 on the general proposition that he be a member of the European Commission led by the executive's incoming president, Jean-Claude Juncker.
