World IN BRIEF : GREECE : New and Leaner Cabinet Named
Prime Minister Constantine Mitsotakis named a smaller Cabinet that he hopes will deal more efficiently with Greece’s worsening economic problems. The new Cabinet, to be sworn in today, consists of 36 ministers and undersecretaries, seven fewer than the former lineup. Mitsotakis appointed composer Mikis Theodorakis, a former Communist, to the new post of minister of state. Theodorakis previously was minister without portfolio.
