Trinidadian nominated for IDB presidency

Gerard Johnson, a native of Trinidad & Tobago, has been nominated by his country for the presidency of the Inter-American Development Bank.
 
The Washington-based financial institution announced on Saturday that Johnson, a former IDB official now serving as a senior consultant to Jamaica's Ministry of Finance & Public Service, is among five candidates proposed by member-countries for the top position. 
 
The nomination period closed on Friday. 
 
The IDB says Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Chile have also nominated candidates.
 
The bank says its governors will have the opportunity to interview the candidates at a virtual meeting tomorrow. 
 
The election is set to take place at a hybrid meeting of the IDB's Board of Governors on November 20.
 
Former IDB President, Mauricio Claver-Carone, the first American to hold the job, was ousted in an ethics scandal last month.
