It is expected that Euclid Tsakalotos will continue as finance minister and that Giorgos Stathakis will also keep his role at the Economy Ministry.

However, Tsipras is said to want to create a position at the level of deputy minister that will carry the responsibility for coordinating the government’s actions in relation to the demands of the third bailout. It is expected that caretaker finance minister Giorgos Houliarakis, who also led Greece’s negotiating team in Brussels over recent months, will take on this role.

SYRIZA stalwart Yiannis Dragasakis is expected to continue in his role as deputy prime minister. It was rumored that he was being lined up to become the next parliamentary speaker but it seems that this role is likely to go to Nikos Voutsis.

Sources said that Yiannis Panousis is unlikely to be recalled as citizens’ protection minister. Also, the current caretaker minister for immigration policy, Yiannis Mouzalas, may be kept on by the new government.
