      World Bank Board to Consider Wolfowitz

      Mar 25, 4:44 PM (ET)

      WASHINGTON (AP) - The World Bank's board plans to meet
      next week to consider the nomination of Deputy Defense
      Secretary Paul Wolfowitz to take the helm of the
      development bank.

      The bank said Friday that its 24-member board will
      meet March 31 to make a decision.

      President Bush last week recommended that Wolfowitz be
      the next president of the 184-nation World Bank.

      The United States is the bank's largest shareholder.
      The bank traditionally has had an American president.

      Germany, Britain and Italy have publicly backed
      Wolfowitz, giving him important support from Europe,
      where hostility to the U.S.-led war in Iraq lingers.

      The selection of Wolfowitz, an architect of the Iraq
      war, has drawn criticism, especially from some
      international aid and other groups.
