Olga Kefalogiannis was left out of the Cabinet – last minute changes

The governmental format, which includes 51 ministers, alternate ministers and deputy ministers – it surely cannot be characterized as flexible – was announced today by the new government spokesman Stelios Petsas.

Out of the 51, 21 are extra-parliamentarians, with private and public careers in Greece and abroad, who responded to the call by Kyriacos Mitsotakis.

The composition of the government is missing the name of Olga Kefaloyianni – for the third time came first in votes in Athens A’ district – who refused the Ministry of Tourism, having asked to also include the Ministry of Culture.

Also, last minute changes resulted in Vasilis Kikilias moving from Defense to Health Ministry, with Aggelos Syrigos being left out, after Giorgos Koumoutsakos was appointed alternate minister of the Immigration Policy.
