Not in Lebanon: 11 out of 17 ministers are women in new Spanish cabinet


The new Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, formed his new cabinet which for the first time in the history of Spain had a majority of women ministers, 11 out of 17 ministers. Sanchez, during a press conference on Wednesday, made clear that the new government is indisputably committed to gender equality, and maintained that for the first time in the Spanish democracy, the cabinet has more women than men in it. The new sworn-in government, he said, embraces different generations and is open to the world, but stands by and is anchored in the European Union. Among the new women appointees, are socialist Carmen Calvo who became deputy prime minister; Nadia Calvino, the director general of EU budget named as minister of economy and Dolores Delgado, a state attorney who took over the ministry of justice.
