Arab Today, arab today World Bank set to pick Zoellick\'s successor

Washington - Arabstoday

The World Bank plans to select its next president by the time of its spring meetings in late April, it announced on Friday. The bank\'s 25-member executive board said it will accept nominations until March 23. The board said it will choose up to three candidates to interview. It wants to finalise its selection by the time of the April 20-22 meetings of the World Bank and its sister lending organisation, the International Monetary Fund. Robert Zoellick, the current World Bank president, announced on Thursday that he would step down when his five-year term ends on June 30. Since the IMF and the World Bank were created, the top IMF job has always gone to a European, and the World Bank post has gone to an American. But China, now the world\'s second-largest economy, and other emerging economic powers such as Brazil and India have argued that they, too, deserve consideration for the leadership of the two organisations. The IMF and World Bank have adopted new selection guidelines aimed at ensuring a more open process. But in June, when the IMF chose a new leader, it selected another European, Christine Lagarde. Lagarde, then the French finance minister, was chosen after Dominique Strauss-Kahn abruptly stepped down from the IMF after being charged with attempted rape. The charges were dropped. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Thursday that the Obama administration would put forward a candidate for the World Bank post. But he didn\'t say whether the administration would consider promoting a non-American. Geithner said the United States wanted the World Bank\'s board to engage in an \"open and expeditious\" process. Two Americans who have been mentioned for the post are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. Clinton\'s spokeswoman said on Thursday that Clinton isn\'t interested in the job. The United States has the largest voting share on the World Bank board. That gives it a dominant voice in deciding who will lead the institution, a major provider of development loans to poor nations.
