The move came even though the European Parliament on 13 April rejected Wojciechowski as a candidate for the post.
However, the European Parliament's opinion was not binding on EU ministers.
Some European Parliament deputies had questioned whether Wojciechowski, an MEP for Poland’s conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, would be an independent and objective member of the European Court of Auditors
Wojciechowski is a lawyer, judge and a former head of Poland’s central audit office. (pk)
