who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Post throws cold water on Frist and Lugar. The Washington Post, quoting "senior US administration officials" said it was "unlikely the administration will settle on a former senator, suggesting that such a profile does not ensure competence in overseeing the Bank".

The Post argues that may rule out Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican and former Senate majority leader, and Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.), former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The Post believes that Bush has decided to focus on management credentials having "concluded that Wolfowitz's tenure at the Bank failed in part because he lacked institutional credibility".
