who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz not welcome anywhere. Few countries want to have Wolfowitz come knocking on their doors these days and less are willing to even offer him token support.

First, Egypt and Saudi Arabia refused to accept to play hosts to Wolfowitz and canceled plans to receive him last week. Then came news that he will not be going to an international development conference in Slovenia scheduled for this week. Now, Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul, Germany's development minister has uninvited him outright, saying Wolfowitz is not welcome at an Africa forum the bank is holding in Berlin next week if he is still in his post .

He is still welcome ,however, in the US and probably Japan, if not by the people, at least by the government.
