Tsipras keeps bailout issues in safe hands but fails to inspire with new cabinet
Alexis Tsipras named a varied cabinet late on Tuesday night with three key characteristics: Ministers considered safe hands being appointed to bailout-related posts, ministers who had proved controversial either because they prompted reactions within SYRIZA or in general were removed from the government, and ministers who help keep the balance within the ruling party and its coalition partner Independent Greeks were given positions in the administration.
Tsipras did not take any risks with the key appointments linked to the implementation of the bailout. Euclid Tsakalotos will continue as finance minister, while Giorgos Stathakis will remain at the economy ministry.
