WASHINGTON, Oct 9 — The International Monetary Fund said today it will decide “very soon” whether its embattled managing director Kristalina Georgieva keeps her job.
An investigation by a law firm has concluded that she manipulated data in favour of China while in a senior role at the World Bank.
The IMF Executive Board said after a meeting Friday that it has made “significant progress” in its assessment of the case but agreed “to request more clarifying details with a view to very soon concluding its consideration of the matter.” — AFP
