SOFIA, July 24 (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s parliament on Friday appointed Kiril Ananiev as the new finance minister in the cabinet of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, in a reshuffle following a wave of anti-corruption protests in the Balkan country.
Some 116 lawmakers in the 240-seat parliament also approved new economy, health, interior and tourism ministers in the centre-right government. Eighty-nine deputies voted against the reshuffle. (Reporting by Tsvetelia Tsolova; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
