New structure of European Commission presented

New structure of European Commission presented”

This enabled von der Leyen to fulfil her first promise with a large number of commissioners. Von der Leyen said that her team will have good balance with Gentiloni working with Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis. That stands in sharp contrast with the United States, which is pulling out of the accord under President Donald Trump who is a climate-change sceptic.

In a surprising move, Mrs von der Leyen approved the candidacy of former Hungarian justice minister László Trócsányi, who is believed to be one of the chief architects of Hungary's illiberal state, for the highly prestigious neighbourhood and enlargement portfolio.

The first big drama they will likely star in will be Brexit, which, if British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gets his way, will be effective from the first day of the new Commission.

"Of course, if Brexit does happen then the Trade Commissioner would be heavily involved in any negotiations on a future trading relationship between the European Union and UK", Kelly argued.

With Britain, Europe's other main military power apart from France, set to leave the EU, Germany has backed the French-led effort to identify weak spots in European armies with the goal of filling those gaps together as a bloc.

Von der Leyen, a former German defence minister, said the plans would benefit the US -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance to which many European Union states belong, adding: "NATO will always be (our) collective defence".

That issue has taken on added urgency with ominous signs of a possible global recession, or at least a pronounced slowdown not helped by the US-China trade war.

Mr Hogan's team will emphasise his role as Agriculture Commissioner in helping to conclude both the EU-Japan deal and the EU-Mercosur agreement.

Her team is based on recommendations from member nations.

Johannes Hahn, as a long-standing EU Commissioner, is appreciated not only in Austria by all political groups.

There are also holdovers from the previous Commission - Margrethe Vestager from Denmark and Phil Hogan from Ireland for instance, taking on new roles - along with Commission vice president Frans Timmermans.
