Caretaker Government to Step In Ahead of Greek September Polls
A non-political caretaker government announced earlier Friday will be sworn in at 1pm in order to lead Greece to snap selections, which have been slated for September 20, after Alexis Tsipras stepped down as prime minister last week following a seven-month tenure.
Vassiliki Thanou, a supreme court justice and the first woman to hold the premiership, has been appointed Prime Minister.
The new government takes over today and will govern to the elections, which will take place in approximately three weeks.
