Devex: Lebanon withdraws World Bank nominee under pressure
“Lebanon has withdrawn its nomination of Ziad Hayek to be the next World Bank president. Hayek told Devex on Monday the Lebanese government made its decision because of ‘pressure’ from other governments. ‘I received some bad news today that the Lebanese government has withdrawn my nomination, but I’m continuing to fight on, still hoping that another party might nominate me instead,’ Hayek told Devex. ‘There was pressure on the Lebanese government from other governments to withdraw my nomination,’ he said…” (Igoe, 3/4).
