who will be next World Bank President What will they do
 
 

     
 

Bruising fight ahead. The Times of London notes that President Bush has provoked "howls of outrage from foes and a distinct lack of enthusiasm from friends" by nominating Paul Wolfowitz to head the World Bank.

It expects a "potentially bruising fight" between the Europeans and Americans over confirmation. A Downing Street spokesperson told the newspaper: "“It is important to wait for the end of the appointment process and, of course, we will be involved in discussions and consultations with the US and others. It is important for us that the World Bank takes forward the challenging agenda we are setting for Africa”.
