Education minister is a long-term post, says Babiniotis

Recently appointed Education Minister Giorgos Babiniotis suggested on Thursday that someone should be appointed to the post he holds with a view to remaining there for the long term.

?The post at the Education Ministry has to be held by a person who knows the issues and is supported by whichever government is in power,? Babiniotis, a professor, said.

Babiniotis said the ministry?s priorities must be to overhaul senior high schools and university entrance exams.
