Greek PM to proceed with mini cabinet reshuffle in coming hours - govt sources

ATHENS, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Greece’s government was poised to announce a cabinet reshuffle on Wednesday, a government official said, in a move expected to keep key ministers of finance and foreign affairs in their posts.

A mini cabinet reshuffle was expected after Dimitri Papadimitriou, who held the national economy and development portfolio, stepped down on Tuesday.

He followed the exit after his wife, a junior labour minister, quit in the midst of controversy over claiming a rent allowance, angering Greeks hit by years of austerity. (Reporting by Renee Maltezou; Writing by Michele Kambas)
