New title for minister

The cabinet decided on Thursday to rename the ministry of communications and works by adding ‘transport’ the title.
The addition will also be used in Minister Marios Demetriades’ title.
According to a statement, renaming the ministry was deemed necessary due to the increasing importance of the transport portfolio.
The cabinet also decided to task the Electromechanical Services with maintaining all government vehicles, including limousines. The decision, according to the press release, aims at reducing maintenance costs and is part of a wider cost cutting plan.
