Tsipras names cabinet, hands top job to pro-euro economist Tsakalotos

Greece's newly elected Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras during the handover ceremony at the prime minister's office in Athens, on September 21, 2015Greece’s freshly-elected Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras unveiled his new cabinet on Tuesday, giving the crisis-hit country’s key finance portfolio back to Euclid Tsakalotos, a leftwing economist determined to keep Greece in the euro. The 55-year-old Oxford-educated Tsakalotos faces the thankless task of steering a slew of unpopular economic reforms agreed by Tsipras with Europe’s leaders in July, in return for Greece’s third financial rescue in five years. The new cabinet, announced by its spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili, is largely a carbon-copy of Tsipras’ outgoing leftwing government.
