Greece’s new finance minister Yannis Stournaras was sworn in to office, alongside two deputy ministers. Stournaras’ swearing in ceremony at the presidential mansion in central Athens yesterday was the first time Prime Minister Antonis Samaras appeared in public since undergoing eye surgery two weeks ago,
shortly after forming a coalition government with another two parties following inconclusive national elections.

Stournaras, a prominent economist, will hold his first meeting with Greece’s international debt inspectors from the European Central Bank, European Commission and International Monetary Fund.

He was named to the post last week after the designated finance minister turned down the post.
