Greek PM reshuffles cabinet, new ministers sworn in

 ATHENS;Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis reshuffled his cabinet on Tuesday and later in the day the new ministers were sworn in the presence of Mitsotakis and Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

 Most key economic portfolios, the Foreign Affairs Ministry and other ministries remained unchanged.

 Former Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos was named the new minister of citizen protection. Ruling New Democracy (ND) party Member of Parliament (MP) Thanos Plevris assumed the post of health minister and outgoing Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias was named tourism minister.

 Earlier on Tuesday, the government announced a new portfolio of Civil Protection. The ministry was created as part of efforts to improve the efficiency of the country's crisis management mechanism, political analysts noted.



 The key post of civil protection is yet to be filled.

 Former Defense Minister Evangelos Apostolakis, who had served under the leftist SYRIZA government in 2019, was named minister of civil protection earlier on Tuesday, when the government spokesperson announced the new lineup.

 However, shortly afterwards, Apostolakis said that he could not accept the portfolio because of lack of cross-party consent.

 The current Greek government's term ends in July 2023.
