who will be next World Bank President What will they do


You broke the rules! According to the NYT the Board may take the route that PW violated the rules against conflicts of interests to pressure him to resign.

“They have had long meetings late into the night and today to ensure that they are following due process,” said a bank official briefed on the committee’s discussions, noting that its work was occurring in secret in a highly charged atmosphere throughout the bank. “There is heavy drafting and redrafting going on.”.

The article also mentioned the fact that the Ad Hoc panel will present its conclusions to PW on Friday so that he can mull over them over the week-end before they hand over their document and PW's response/rebuttal to the 24 members of the EB that will decide his fate sometimes next week.

In the mean time FoxNews is saying that "A decision by a bank committee could come as soon as Thursday on whether to clear, sanction or demand the resignation of Wolfowitz."
