Rapanos “Resigned” Before Be Sworn-In as Greece’s Finance Minister

Vassilis Rapanos, the appointed Finance Minister by Greece’s coalition government, will not be sworn-in as Finance Ministry, Greek media report in Breaking News at 7 p.m. on Monday. Greek media report that Rapanos sent his “resignation” letter to Prime Minister Samaras late on Monday afternoon and that Samaras accepted his resignation. 

According to Greek media, in his letter to PM Rapanos invoked “health problems”, saying the problem he had in the past had not be totally solved. 

Practically Rapanos did not send a “resignation letter” because he was not sworn-in as FinMin. He sent a letter of not accepting the ministerial post.

Media claimed that although Rapanos is to exit the hospital tomorrow Tuesday, he has some health issues that do not allow him to take such a difficult post. In the past Rapanos had to deal with a serious gastro-problem that seems to have returned.

However there are also rumors about a political background that may have forced him to take such decision.

Rapanos was urged to hospital last Friday, with symptoms like fever, abdomen pain, nausea, dizziness, exhaustion.  He is President of the National Bank of Greece.

The question is now, who will be Greece’s Finance Minister.
