who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Staff Association Action. The World Bank Staff Association is fighting for its say on the Wolfowitz nomination, according to an internal email doing the rounds.

"While recognizing that the selection and confirmation of the next World Bank president is the prerogative of the shareholders, staff are asking that their views be taken into consideration and taken seriously by the decision-makers.

"The Staff Association is preparing to act as a conduit for these views, and the Executive Committee is urgently considering the most effective way to help staff be heard.

"A Staff Association delegation is meeting with Mr. Wolfensohn this afternoon, we are in touch with the Board, and we will get back to you as soon as possible on next steps.

"Please be assured that the Staff Association is prepared to take action and work to ensure that staff views are heard."

I've been wondering how Mr Wolfowitz is going to fare taking charge of an organisation whose staff seem - by and large - opposed to his appointment...
