Greece's top negotiator in aid talks with creditors, Euclid Tsakalotos, will be sworn in as finance minister on Monday after the resignation of Yanis Varoufakis, a Greek presidency source said.

"Tsakalotos will be sworn in with the political oath as finance minister," the presidency official said.

The swearing-in was scheduled to take place at 8 p.m. local time.
