Greek Prime Minister Yiorgos Papandreou and Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos last month announced the responsibilities assigned to Culture and Tourism Deputy Minister Angela Gerekou.
According to the decision published in the Government Gazette, the deputy minister will undertake all services of the former Tourism Ministry and the services of the General Secretariat of Sports.

Mrs. Gerekou also has been given parliamentary duties but not legislative initiatives as they remain among the responsibilities of the Culture and Tourism Minister.
She has also been given the responsibility for the proposal of individual and regulatory decrees, as well as the issuing of individual and regulatory acts, and the co-signing of Presidential Decrees and resolutions together with other ministers, alternate ministers and deputy ministers.
