Washington sources reported that former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and US President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka are among possible US candidates to replace outgoing World Bank President Jim Yong Kim. Meanwhile Kim abruptly announced he was cutting short his tenure as the bank's president more than three years before his second term was due to end.
Furthermore in addition to Trump and Haley, who stepped down as US Ambassador to the United Nations last month, other names being floated include Treasury Undersecretary for International Affairs David Malpass and Mark Green, head of the US Agency for International Development. Earlier Ivanka Trump in 2017 was the driving force behind a $1 billion, Saudi-supported World Bank fund to promote entrepreneurship by women.
A spokesperson said “The department has received a "significant number of recommendations". Moreover we are beginning the internal review process for a US nominee and we look forward to working with the governors to select a new leader. Further under an unwritten agreement, the United States, which is the bank's largest shareholder, has always chosen its leader since the institution was founded following World War II.
