European Commission: Who has been named in Ursula von der Leyen's 27-member team?

An Irishman has been nominated for the trade position, while the competition pick is likely to trigger reaction from Washington.

By Rachael Kennedy, news reporter

The European Commission's incoming president Ursula von der Leyen has released the names of her new team, with a number of appointments in particular standing out.

As the first female Commission president-elect, Mrs Von der Leyen has achieved an almost equal gender split in her 27-strong team, designating 14 roles to men and 13 to women.

She has also nominated Irishman Phil Hogan to take the lead on trade, which would see him negotiating future deals with the US and the UK post-Brexit.

She has also asked EU's current chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier to continue in his role.

Denmark's Margrethe Vestager, who famously handed huge fines to tech giants Apple and Google, has retained her role in charge of competition policy.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
