European Commission president-elect Ursula von der Leyen agreed on a list of designates for the EU body on Monday, confirming Nicolas Schmit (LSAP) for Luxembourg.
The list of Commissioners still requires the official consent of the EU Council.
On Tuesday von der Leyen will announce how portfolios will be distributed. There has been speculation, based on a leaked document, that the former Luxembourg employment minister will land the financial services role.
