who will be next World Bank President What will they do


I am the victim Is this the excuse for incompetency? or blame the other side for smear campaign. Where is his notion of ACCOUNTABILITY ?

"In a prepared statement to the panel, Wolfowitz said the institution's ethics committee had access to all the details surrounding the arrangement involving bank employee Shaha Riza, "if they wanted it.""
How fast did he forget that he instructed the VP of HR to process the salary raise and the details of her promotion?
"I will not resign in the face of a plainly bogus charge of conflict of interest," he said.
Let's wait for and see the extent of the Ad Hoc Panel's recommendations to the Board!

According to Bloomberg
"The panel will probably complete its investigation today and take one or two more days to write up its report, said a person familiar with the process who asked not to be identified.
The panel could then recommend firing or censuring Wolfowitz, the person said. A third option would be to present factual findings to the full board without suggesting a course of action, the person added."

Will the Europeans band together ( with Japan in a discete way) and could they sway some of the African countries?
