who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Further outrage from senior European parliamentarians. "Bush's overtures to Europe during his visit and talk about global partnership were nothing more than lip service. In his nominations for important international posts he is obviously continuing to pursue a stubborn unilateral course. His candidate Paul Wolfowitz represents everything that we as Europeans don't want". These are the words of Monica Frassoni, Co-President of the Greens/European Free Alliance group in the European Parliament.

The statement calls for a common European statement as soon as possible.

Frassoni is also on the board of the 1,000 strong Parliamentarians Network on the World Bank. We are optimistic that this network is (not before time) about to swing into action on this question which is clearly of vital importance to their agenda.

Meanwhile in the Dutch parliament a member demanded that this issue be placed on the agenda of the European heads of state meeting next week. Others are following suit in making the same request of their leaders.
