Bulgaria’s Finance Minister Expects New Governor of Bulgarian National Bank by end-April
Monday, 30 March 2015
Bulgaria’s Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov has suggested that a decision on appointing a new Governor of the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB) should be in place by end-April.
Goranov, as cited by the Bulgarian National Radio, made clear Friday that the two candidates whose names were already in circulation, Dimitar Radev and Nikolay Gorchev, both of them officials of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), were good options for successors of incumbent Ivan Iskrov.
He added that talks were underway with other candidates too and that no MP would be appointed BNB Governor.
He assured that the issue would be approached carefully and that the candidates would be studied rigorously.
Goranov declared that the nomination would be discussed in Parliament as soon as the ruling coalition and, possibly, opposition parties, reached agreement on the candidate.
