Athens, Greece (AP) — The middle-right authorities in Greece named the nation’s first overtly homosexual minister in a cupboard reshuffle Monday. Nicholas Yatromanolakis, 44, was named as the brand new deputy minister of tradition after being promoted from the place of common secretary on the ministry. The federal government retained its ministers of well being and finance and most different key positions within the reshuffle.
Greece is reeling from the affect of the pandemic that prompted a spike in deaths within the fall and is anticipated to have prompted a 10.5% contraction of its gross home product in 2020.
Regardless of the difficulties, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis left most key cupboard positions unchanged, retaining Christos Staikouras as finance minister and Vasilis Kilikias as well being minister.
Vaccinations have been expanded from 9 to 50 hospitals nationwide Monday.
