Happy Mitsotakis Looking to Stir, Not Shake His Cabinet

ATHENS – His government riding high in polls for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is still nonetheless expected to make some changes in his Cabinet and some surprises are expected.

The reshuffle in the cards was reported by Kathimerini, which leans toward the Conservatives, with no explanation why he would want to shake things up when his party had a 19.5 percent lead in a recent survey over the major opposition Radical Left SYRIZA that was unseated in July 7, 2019 snap elections.

Approaching one year in power, Mitsotakis is thinking of making some changes, the paper said without indicating who may be on the outs nor why it's being done as he has repeatedly ruled out another snap poll.

The changes will happen right away or in early July, the paper said. Mitsotakis, asked what he was thinking about a reshuffle said that, “You are using the wrong word; the right one is ‘corrective moves,’” although that's two words.

He went on to say that, 'You know I make my decisions on the mountain, but now it is summer,” referring to his penchant for thinking of big moves in December as he did when contemplating his choice for Greece's new symbolic President.

Sources not identified told the paper that Mitsotakis has decided to keep the core of his key ministers. They added that the reshuffle, whenever it takes place, will also include a few “surprises” and also end any talk of early elections.
