who will be next World Bank President What will they do
 
 

     
 

Bono halts own bandwagon. Not a great surprise, but Bono is not available for the World Bank president position.

The head of campaign group DATA. established by Bono campaign for him on debt, aid and trade issues, has confirmed this. Jamie Drummond, DATA's executive director, told Reuters: "I can't believe I need to say this, but there are no circumstances in which Bono would be nominated or accept the World Bank job".

DATA's Drummond continued that "Bono is flattered to be mentioned for such an important job but DATA does its best work from the outside."

Drummond would not be drawn on other specific candidates, but hoped that whoever wins the job "puts the interest of the poorest people in places like Africa first, and wins the trust of people around the world."

Good point. A pity then that Bono has already found what he is looking for and is not pursuing the Bank job.
