The cabinet on Friday appointed Marios Panayides as the new head of the state health services organisation Okypy following his predecessor’s resignation on Wednesday.
Panayides was promoted from a member of the Okypy council to president, replacing Alekos Stamates.
Stamates was head of Okypy for less than a year. He resigned for personal reasons while he told CNA he wants to spend more time with his family.
Polykarpos Votsis was also appointed on Friday as Okypy’s new operations manager.
