LISBON Nov 25 Portugal's President Anibal Cavaco Silva has accepted the lineup of a new Socialist government, where Bank of Portugal economist Mario Centeno will serve as finance minister, and will swear it in on Thursday, the president's office said in a statement.
With a PhD from Harvard, Centeno, 48, is an expert on labour market issues and was the main economic policy advisor to Socialist leader and prime minister-designate Antonio Costa, coordinating the Socialist economic programme before an inconclusive Oct. 4 election.
