NICOSIA -- President Nicos Anastasiades on Friday swore in three new cabinet members and shifted another to a different portfolio in a mini-reshuffle triggered by a walkout by his coalition partner over resumed reunification talks with the Turkish Cypriots.

The three new ministers are award-winning researcher Philippos Patsalis (Health), academic Costas Kadis (Education) and economist Marios Demetriades (Communications).

Former Communications Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos has now moved to defence.

“Your appointment is not a random one, it is down to your excellent academic and technocratic achievements and distinguished presence in Cypriot society,” Anastasiades told his new ministers.
