  • No one voted for Spain’s new prime minister

The minister for territorial administration, Meritxell Batet, is instead a Catalan federalist.

Budget Director-General at the European Commission Nadia Calvino was named economy minister and state prosecutor Dolores Delgado becomes justice minister.

A close aide to Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez indicated that a former Andalusia councillor, Maria Jesus Montero, would become budget minister in the new government.

The Socialist Party has only 84 seats in the 350-seat Spanish parliament.

He noted in presenting the list to King Felipe VI that his new government is "unmistakably committed to equality" and intends to reflect recent changes in Spanish society.

The government of Spain's new Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has been sworn in with women outnumbering men by 11 to six at the top of government for the first time in the country's history.

Ms Calvino, who is now director general for the EU budget at the European Commission, can count on a positive economic cycle in Spain, which has one of the highest growth rates in the euro zone.

"(The new cabinet) is pro-gender equality, cross-generational, open to the world but anchored in the European Union".

Since taking office in 2011, Rajoy has survived a bailout for Spain's banking sector, an election that left him with a minority government and a separatist push in the wealthy northeastern region of Catalonia. José Luis Zapatero, the last socialist prime minister, had appointed an equal number of male and female ministers.

He said in a statement that a committee would be formed to investigate the blast, with findings presented to him within three days.

To maintain "stability", Sanchez has also promised to implement the 2018 budget crafted by the previous conservative government.

Numerous new ministers are drawn from outside politics, such as former astronaut Pedro Duque, who has been appointed minister of science, innovation and universities.

That budget includes pensions hikes and a salary increase for civil servants.

Sanchez's new team also includes a minister in charge of science, innovation and universities.

A Catalan who is fiercely against the independence movement in his home region, Borrell will be tasked with defending his government's commitment to Spanish unity overseas.

Maxim Huerta, an award-winning author, became culture minister.

The previously announced appointment of Josep Borrell, the former European Parliament president and a pro-Spanish unity Catalan politician, as foreign minister, irked some separatists.

As such, she will have the prickly task of trying to ease the situation in her own deeply divided home region.
