‘Dijsselbloem has a Chance to Win the IMF Presidency.’ Former finance minister and Eurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijsselbloem is one of the candidates to succeed Christine Lagarde as boss of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Also, reported on Monday evening. At the beginning of this month,
it was announced that Lagarde was nominated to succeed Mario Draghi being president of the European Central Bank (ECB).
Dijsselbloem is the new chair of the Dutch Safety Board (OVV) on 1 May, succeeding Tjibbe Joustra.
Other contenders initiates are Bank of England President Mark Carney, born in Canada but holding a British passport,
and former EU Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva from Bulgaria.
She has been the World Bank’s interim CEO since 2017 and was recently in the race to become President of the European Council.
If it is up to the finance ministers of France and Spain, the successor to Lagarde will at least become a European.
That is also in line with expectations.
Since its founding in 1945, there has been a specific agreement whereby Europe can appoint the head of the IMF.
On the other hand, the United States may nominate the boss of the World Bank.
