Disy MP Nicos Nouris will replace Petrides in the Interior Ministry. Current Ayia Napa Mayor Yiannis Karousos will take over the Ministry of Transport from Vasiliki Anastasiadou. Prodromos Prodromou, who served as Government Spokesman, will head the Ministry of Education, replacing Costas Hambiaouris.

After the ceremony, Prodomou will hand over his portfolio to Kyriacos Koushos, while Klelia Vasiliou, who served as Deputy Government Spokeswoman, will hand over to Panayiotis Sentonas.

Later on Tuesday, hand over ceremonies will take place in the Ministries changing hands.
