The new president’s responsibilities and those of the organization’s managing director are to be defined through a relevant amendment, the Culture and Tourism Ministry said.

According to Greek press reports, Mr. Kanellopoulos was asked to fill the void that had existed for two and a half months in the GNTO following the change in government from the 4 October 2009 elections.

The direct placement of Mr. Kanellopoulos as GNTO president does not imply that the proclamation of the position through open government website will be will circumvented, Greek press reports said.

The press reports conclude that Mr. Kanellopoulos will act as an “interim president” to the GNTO unless he too submits an application to and is chosen among candidates as most appropriate thus continuing his duties as president.

The GNTO also announced its new board members: Dionisis Panos, Dimitris Konstantopoulos, Annia Spiliopoulou, Egli Balamatsi, Dimitra Boura, Eleni Tsatsaki, Periklis Spatoulas and Antonis Kerastaris.

The new GNTO Board of Directors will offer services without pay while results are awaited from the announcement of positions through the website
