SOFIA Feb 18 (Reuters) - Bulgaria's rightist government on Monday sacked Finance Minister Simeon Djankov, who has maintained tight fiscal policy as the European Union's poorest country recovers from a deep recession.

Djanvov's sacking comes a day after nationwide protests against high electricity prices. He will be replaced by current EU Funds Minister Tomislav Donchev, who will keep both portfolios.
