Bulgaria's former deputy prime minister and finance minister, Simeon Djankov, will be a lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in the US.

The information was reported by the Bulgarian 24 Chassa (24 Hours) daily.

According to the publication, Djankov, finance minister in the previous Cabinet of PM, Boyko Borisov, and his center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, had received offers to teach at the prestigious Harvard and Stanford.

After the resignation of the GERB government back in February 2013, Djankov announced this was the end of his political career, stressing he will focus on academics from now on.

It was also reported that he is writing a book.

The former finance minister, a firm proponent of fiscal discipline, disagrees with those analysts, who say the "Borisov" government fell due to its austerity drive.
