Spain swears in 'feminist cabinet'
Sanchez, 46, ousted conservative veteran Mariano Rajoy as prime minister last week in a no-confidence vote
Felipe VI on Thursday swore in Spain's new pro-EU government, with women holding the majority of ministerial posts. Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez named 11 women to top posts including defence and economy in a cabinet with six male ministers.
That makes it the European government with the most women after Sweden's, which has 12 female cabinet ministers and 11 men. Sanchez's administration risks not lasting until the end of the current mandate in 2020, however, given the fragmented state of Spain's political parties. Sanchez, 46, ousted conservative veteran Mariano Rajoy as prime minister last week in a no-confidence vote.
