European Parliament resolution on the Affair "President of the World Bank" 

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to Rule 115 of its Rules of Procedure,

   A.whereas the World Bank must be considered the most important global development institution and whereas the policy and integrity of its leadership have profound reverberations for the entire donor and development community,
   B.whereas the selection process of key leadership positions in the World Bank suffer from living up to globally shared standards of transparency and democracy, with negative repercussions on the legitimacy of the World Bank at a time when strong and legitimate multilateral institutions are urgently needed,
   C.whereas the outgoing President of the World Bank has put a strong emphasis on principles of "good governance" for the selection of aid recipients, including the application of the rule of law, democracy, and transparency and accountability of public institutions; principles which are firmly supported by the European institutions and which must apply also to the operations and decision-making processes of the World Bank itself,
   D.whereas the European Union Member States hold more than 30% of the vote in the Board of the World Bank and represent an important factor in the World Bank decision-making process, including the appointment of its leadership,
   E.whereas the set up of the Parliamentary Network on the World Bank (PNoWB) demonstrates the increasing attention of elected legislators in the policies and proceedings of the World Bank, with the view of strengthening its accountability to parliaments worldwide,
   1.Welcomes the decision of the outgoing World Bank President, Paul Wolfowitz, to submit his resignation from the post, after a report of the special investigation group of the World Bank Board, issued on 15 May 2007, indicted him for having broken Bank rules and having engaged in an actual conflict of interest when in 2005 he arranged for a generous salary boost for his girlfriend, judging this behaviour as "inconsistent with his obligation to 'maintain the highest standards of integrity in personal and professional conduct'",
   2.Deplores that the Board of the World Bank did not realize at a much earlier stage the damage which the behaviour of its President has provoked and which would have needed quicker and more determined decisions,
   3.Deplores the lack of a common position of the European Union Member States holding a seat in the Board of the World Bank during the leadership crisis surrounding its outgoing president, which makes the European members co-responsible for the unacceptable length of this crisis,
   4.Urges European Union Member States holding a seat in the Board of the World Bank to propose candidates for the new president of the World Bank according to their merits only and independently of the nationality of these candidates,
   5.Urges European Union Member States holding a seat in the Board of the World Bank to demand public hearings of candidates for the new leadership of the World Bank,
   6.Calls on the Commission to develop as a matter of priority with European Directors in the World Bank a proposal on how to make future leadership selection processes in the Bretton Woods institutions more democratic, transparent and accountable,
   7.Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the Member States and the President and the Executive Directors of the World Bank.
