  • Giorgos Katrougalos will replace Tsipras as Foreign Minister
  • Sia Anagnostopoulou is to take over as alternate foreign minister, handling European affairs, a post previously filled by Katrougalos
  • Eleftheria Hatzigeorgiou will serve as new Deputy Minister for Macedonia-Thrace, replacing Katerina Notopoulou
  • Constantinos Barkas will take over from Thanassis Iliopoulos as Deputy Minister for Social Security
  • Thanos Moraitis will take over as Deputy Minister at the Ministry for Infrastructure
  • Angelos Tolkas will be appointed Deputy Minister at the country’s Ministry for Migration

The new ministers will be sworn in on Monday, following Tsipras’s return from Berlin.
