IMF to decide ‘very soon’ if managing director keeps her job

The International Monetary Fund said Friday 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 favor 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.”

On Thursday Georgieva, 68, said she hoped for an “expeditious resolution” of the case.
