Spain's Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez's new pro-EU government will be sworn in on Thursday with the most women in modern history, with 11 female and six male ministers.EU budget manager Nadia Calvino will become economy minister and former European parliament president Josep Borrell foreign minister.It is also a minority government, as the Socialists only have 84 lawmakers in the 350-seat parliament.As such, the government will have a tough time governing Spain, relying as it will on the votes of far-left party Podemos as well as Basque and Catalan nationalist lawmakers who supported his no-confidence motion.The new executive includes two veteran Socialists -- Carmen Calvo, vice-president, and Borrell.
