(Deputy Prime Minister)
|Mostly honorific post for senior ministers, and is usually combined with another senior government portfolio.|
The Deputy Prime Minister of Greece (or "Vice-President of the Government") is the second senior-most member of the Greek Cabinet. Despite the English translation of the title, he does not actually deputize for the Prime Minister, rather it is a mostly honorific post for senior ministers, and is usually combined with another senior government portfolio (traditionally either Foreign Affairs, Finance or Defence) or a coordinating role over several ministries. The post is not permanent, rather it is created on an ad hoc basis, usually for the leaders of junior parties in coalition cabinets, and may be held by more than one person at once.
