Among the five ordinary vice presidents are Slovakia's Maroš Šefčovič, who was named to coordinate inter-institutional relations and foresight, Croatian commissioner-designate Dubravka Šuica at democracy and demography, and current Czech commissioner Věra Jourová, who will be responsible for values and transparency and will help coordinate European Union action against countries which defy the rule of law.

Incoming European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said Tuesday that Brexit - "should it happen" - would be only the start of a new relationship between the United Kingdom and the EU, and "not the end".

In introducing her new team on Tuesday, von der Leyen described Gentiloni as "very experienced". Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

If her selection is approved by the European Parliament and EU leaders, it will boast near gender parity, with 13 women and 14 men, meeting one of von der Leyen's key modernising pledges.

"As a senior member of the EU Commission, Phil Hogan has the opportunity to put a firm footprint on commission policy".

Introducing the nominees for her Commission, Von der Leyen said that she wanted it to be "flexible, agile and modern".

"If a no deal is what Boris Johnson wants that is always something he can get, but as I see it the majority of MPs and the population do not want a hard Brexit".

The nomination must be ratified by the European Parliament.

Rome's new government, which brings together the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) and the centre-left Democratic Party, has indicated that it wants to pursue an "expansive" economic policy, but "without jeopardising" sound public finances.

Ska Keller, president of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, said in a statement that putting migration and border protection under a portfolio on protecting the European way of life was "scary".

His stated mission, set out in a letter from von der Leyen, is to "look at everything from how we use and produce energy, unlock private investment and support new clean technologies, all the way through to the transport we use, the food we eat and the packaging we throw away".
