Appointments to UN Agencies - World Bank, IMF

The Bretton Woods Institutions - the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund - have had a loose relationship with the UN since the founding of the organizations in 1944 and 1945. UNelections monitors the selection process to appoint the leaders of the two institutions - the President of the World Bank and the Managing Director of the IMF. These important selection processes share many of the weaknesses of high-level elections and appointments in the rest of the UN system.
