New ministers question moves by predecessors

Several members of the new cabinet sworn in earlier this month appear to be questioning decisions taken by their predecessors, particularly as relates to a much-delayed mobility scheme foreseeing a streamlining of the civil service.

Among the new ministers seeking a review of recent decisions are Education Minister Andreas Loverdos, who ruffled feathers Tuesday when he suggested that he could not enforce a budget that he himself had not voted for in Parliament.

Meanwhile Interior Minister Argyris Dinopoulos appeared to make an overture to local authority employees protesting the mobility scheme, noting that their concern is not unjustified.

Administrative staff at universities who have been affected by the mobility scheme are planning a fresh wave of action following a long strike last fall that paralyzed the higher education sector. The staff object to a government decision to rehire 600 staff who were put in a mobility scheme last year but to leave another 500 or so out of a job.

A statement issued by the senate of Athens University described the move as very displeasing and a total reversal of everything that has been discussed and agreed over the past six months with the government, referring to the former Education Minister Constantinos Arvanitopoulos.

It condemned the governments inconceivable wavering, adding that the university needed all of its staff back to function properly.
