Simeon Djankov, a World Bank analyst and chief economic advisor to the new center-right GERB party, which won by a wide margin the general elections on July 5, will be named Bulgaria's next finance minister.

"Yes, the finance minister in my government will be called Simeon Djankov and this is the first time I am telling this to anyone," Boyko Borisov, GERB leader and future prime minister of Bulgaria, told a Dow Jones reporter, while he was inspecting Sofia subway.

Borisov, Sofia mayor, leader of the winner in the general elections GERB party and already self-proclaimed prime minister of Bulgaria, said he already knows the line-up of the next government, but refused to disclose other names.

On the election night Simeon Djankov was seen ever present by the side of Borisov.
