The Ministry of the Interior and Administrative Reconstruction (Greek: Υπουργείο Εσωτερικών και Διοικητικής Ανασυγκρότησης) is a government department of Greece. Before 1995, between 2007 and 2009, and between 2011 and 2015, the ministry was known as the Ministry of the Interior (Υπουργείο Εσωτερικών). From 15 September 1995 to 19 September 2007, it was called the Ministry of the Interior, Public Administration and Decentralization (Υπουργείο Εσωτερικών, Δημόσιας Διοίκησης και Αποκέντρωσης). It was then merged with the Ministry of Public Order and reverted to its original name. The merger was reversed on 7 October 2009 and the Ministry of the Interior, Decentralization and Electronic Governance (Υπουργείο Εσωτερικών, Αποκέντρωσης και Ηλεκτρονικής Διακυβέρνησης) was formed. On 27 June 2011, a separate Ministry of Administrative Reform and e-Governance was created. On 27 January 2015, the incoming Tsipras government recombined the two ministries. The current minister is Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) MP Nikos Voutsis.
