WASHINGTON, February 18. /Corr. Andrew Shitov/. 19 February it is expected the re-election of the incumbent Director of the IMF Christine Lagarde on a new five-year term. This was confirmed by the correspondent of TASS sources in the Fund.

“There are expectations,” said a source.

First about the expected re-election Lagarde told French newspaper L Opinion. According to her, the IMF Board decided not to delay this step, as Lagarde was not found rivals in the struggle for the top administrative post in the Fund.
