A European Commission proposal to impose legally
binding quotas on EU companies has been postponed by several weeks,
Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding announced Tuesday, after failing
to win enough support among her commission counterparts.
"I will not give up," Reding posted on Twitter, adding that the issue would be revisited before the end of November.
She said that the president of the commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, and six other commissioners - all men - were backing her initiative, falling far short of the full 27-member panel.
Her press conference was also cancelled.
