Greece's Samaras Names New Finance Minister

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Tuesday appointed well-known economist Yannis Stournaras as the country's new finance minister ahead of the crucial EU summit.

Stournaras, one of the most respected names in Greece's economic circles, was in the team that negotiated Greece's entry to the single currency bloc. He will replace Vassilis Rapanos, who resigned from the post earlier this week due to ill health.

The summit is crucial for Greece as the new Greek government is widely expected to urge its European partners to relax some of the bailout terms. Samaras will miss this week's EU summit as he is currently recovering from eye surgery.
