Greek Finance Minister's Job Discussed Under Pending Reshuffle

Greek Finance Minister's Job Discussed Under Pending Reshuffle

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will reshuffle his cabinet, and his widely respected finance minister could be among those set to depart, Reuters reported.
The party of Samaras lost the EU election last month to the radical leftist Syriza. The conservative party is expected to use the reshuffle to show Greeks he has heeded their message at the ballot, which was seen as a test of faith in the government.
Now everybody is wandering weather economist Yannis Stournaras, who has led negotiations with Greece's EU/IMF lenders and is credited with spearheading the country's return to fiscal discipline after it nearly went bankrupt, will remain as finance minister.
None of the four sources, who shared that the Minister is discussing the depart of Stournaras, said who might replace him. Stournaras himself has so far said nothing on the issue other than that it was Samaras's decision.
