The appointments come a day after Supreme Court head Vassiliki Thanou was sworn into office.
    
The 65-year-old was appointed after outgoing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras resigned last week, barely seven months into his four-year mandate, following a rebellion by members of his radical-left Syriza party who objected to his agreement with the conditions of Greece's third international bailout.
    
The new cabinet was to be sworn in later today. Elections are widely expected to be set for September 20.
    
Tsipras has said he needs a stronger mandate to implement the tough austerity measures accompanying the three-year, 86 billion euro bailout, but an opinion poll published in a newspaper today found small support for his move.
