Chief spokesman Margaritis Schinas is slated to fill the post of European Commission vice president, sources have told Kathimerini.

Schinas will become the first Greek to hold such a high-ranking position in the European Commission's top decision-making body.

The move is also seen as a vote of confidence in the new center-right New Democracy government in Athens.

European Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen is expected to announce the new commission on Tuesday.
