Hasina proposes Yunus’s name as World Bank Chief

By Nazmus Saquib

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina who is widely known for her alleged role in removing Muhammad Yunus from his position as chief executive of Grameen Bank, is now proposing for him to take over as head of Washington-based World Bank.

She made the proposal at a meeting with a delegation of European MPs in Dhaka today, a top aide to Sheikh Hasina said.

The aide, who declined to be named for now, told that the 10-strong team of MEPs appreciated the proposal from the prime minister. The aide did not give further details.

The current World Bank president, Bob Zoellick, announced last week that he would not seek re-appointment at the end of his five-year term this June. The US secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, is among those tipped to succeed Zoellick.


  1. Hasina loves drama. She takes Bangladesh as family property. Anything goes. She twists and turn at her own pace and will.
