Bulgaria's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Simeon Djankov, admitted he came back to the homeland from the US because of PM, Boyko Borisov.

Speaking Sunday before TV7, Djankov stated that there were still plenty of unaccomplished tasks, but pledged he would quit his ministerial post in case Borisov does not get reelected in the summer of this year.

He commented he has been personally invited by Borisov to take over the country's finances and would accept an invitation from him for a second term in office.

"If I am to quit after the election, I will write books, professional books in finances. I am known at the World Bank and internationally as a top expert," he revealed.

The Minister stressed no one, not even the PM, could force him to start spending more in the wake of the general election.

"And Borisov is not the type of politician to ask for this anyway. Gradually, he became as right-wing as I am when it comes to fiscal discipline. One must stay the course, never give up – both in finances and in live," said he.

Djankov explained he would resign for two reasons – if the State budget fails and if the full smoking ban would be lifted in Bulgaria.

"I am not directly involved in the ban, but I believe it contributes to better healthcare. Several Ministers, the Speaker of the Parliament, the Customs Head, others around me, all cut down significantly on the number of cigarettes they smoke," Djankov concluded.

He pledged that until he is at the post, State budgets will always be accomplished as planned.

The Minister said the State goes bankrupt only when the Communist and the Socialists rule it.
