Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has made an attempt to put an end to speculations he might run for president in five years.

"There have been some insolent questions to Rosen Plevneliev whether he will be keeping the post for me to take it after five years. Let me tell you today that I will not run for president. I am very tired and hope I will have some time to rest before I die. I hope you will stop haunting me and Plevneliev with these insolent questions," Borisov told journalists late on Sunday.

Borisov has been making hints for at least a year, without providing a cleat-cut answer if he might seek the presidential post for himself in the 2011 contest, and to put somebody else in charge of the Cabinet of his center-right GERB party.

Rosen Plevneliev, candidate of Bulgaria's ruling center-right party GERB, clinched a victory in the presidential election run-off Sunday, while his Socialist challenger Ivaylo Kalfin conceded defeat.
