Our friends at the Social Justice Committee Canada have set up a website, www.worldbankpresident.ca to formally make suggestions on who should succeed Wolfowitz. The poll’s results will be sent to the Canadian Finance Minister, who will be urged to make a nomination based on them.
More from SJC:
“Visitors are asked to provide their choice for the new president,
give their nationality, and promise to vote only once. The results
of the poll will be sent to the Canadian Minister of Finance, to
guide him in making a nomination to the position.
“My personal vote is for Stephen Lewis,” said SJC Director Derek
MacCuish. “I think he suits the criteria the World Bank’s Executive
Directors set out on May 29 – which we hope they’ll follow. But
there are certainly lots of other good candidates out there, and we
want to find out who they are.”
The poll will close June 15, when the World Bank’s Board of
Governors will make the final decision on the nomination. “
