I am very happy to be given the important portfolio of Home Affairs! Thank you for the confidence @vonderleyen! I look forward to hard work and intense cooperation in a gender balanced Commission. #vdLcommission #BalancedEurope— Ylva Johansson (@YlvaJohansson) September 10, 2019
Johansson, the nation's current minister for employment, replaces Cecilia Malmström who has represented Sweden in Brussels since 2010 and also once served as Commissioner for Home Affairs.
EU Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen announced her line-up on Tuesday. She called Johansson "hands-on. If you want something to be done, ask her."
