Maroš Šefčovič, the long-time European Commissioner for Slovakia, will remain the vice-president of the European Commission in the next five years.
Šefčovič will no longer deal with the energy union portfolio, however. In the Commission of Ursula von der Leyen, he will cover the portfolio of interinstitutional relations and foresight.
Von der Leyen announced her nominations for the commissioners on Tuesday noon. The college of commissioners consists of 27 members, one representative from each member state.
The candidates for the posts as nominated by von der Leyen will now have to pass grilling in the European Parliament to be approved in their posts.
