DAKAR - Senegal's new president has named Abdoul Mbaye, a former banker without any affiliation to political parties, as his first prime minister, state television said on Tuesday.

Mbaye, who studied in Senegal and France's top business schools, previously worked at West Africa's BCEAO central bank and has been credited with turning around several ailing private banks in the West African state.

The nomination was announced a day after President Macky Sall was sworn in as Senegal's new leader, having defeated incumbent Abdoulaye Wade, his former mentor, in a tense election.
