The FTC normally has five commissioners, and no more than three can be from the same party.
The position requires Senate confirmation.
Because of the vacancy, there has been concern about deadlocks leading to inaction. In the case of a 2-2 vote by commissioners, the FTC takes no action.
The commission is in the process of considering several key mergers, including the proposed Office Depot Inc deal to buy rival OfficeMax Inc ; and the television ratings company Nielsen Holdings NV plan to buy Arbitron Inc , which dominates radio ratings.
