Bulgaria president taps diplomat as interim PM: sources

World Bulletin / News Desk

Bulgaria's president will name diplomat Marin Raikov as interim prime minister, two sources with direct knowledge of the process said on Tuesday, as he seeks to shore up confidence after protests felled the previous administration.

"Marin Raikov is going to be the new prime minister," said one source, who declined to be named as the information was not public yet. The interim government will serve until an early election scheduled for May 12.

The presidency, which is due to announce the interim administration at 4 p.m. (1400 GMT), declined to comment.
