ATHENS (Reuters) – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is set to reshuffle his cabinet on Monday with the aim of increasing the effectiveness of the conservative government.

His press office said announcements on the new line-up would be made at 12 noon (1000 GMT).

Mitsotakis is also likely to want to signal continuity in some key areas such as finance and foreign affairs.
