Deputy Education Minister Koukodimos resigns

Deputy Education Minister Costas Koukodimos has resigned from his post citing personal reasons.

In a statement released Monday, Koukodimos said he would continue to support the conservative-led government and Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’s “huge effort to regenerate the country.”

Koukodimos, a former long-jump champion, had been appointed deputy education minister following a government reshuffle in June.
