A strong and experienced team, the proposed Juncker Commission includes 5 former Prime Ministers, 4 Deputy Prime Ministers, 19 former Ministers, 7 returning Commissioners and 8 former Members of the European Parliament. 11 of these have a solid economic and finance background, whilst 8 have extensive foreign relations experience.

Phil HoganPhil Hogan has been named as the next EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, marking the second time Ireland has secured the post following Ray Mac Sharry’s tenure in the early 1990s. Mr Hogan, a native of Kilkenny and former minister for the environment, was nominated in July by Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

Within the novelties, a strong consumer portfolio has been created. Consumer policy is no longer scattered across different portfolios but has a prominent place in the portfolio of the Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality (Věra Jourová).
