DHAKA: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wednesday urged the European Union to nominate Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus as the President of the World Bank.
She made the request at a meeting with a delegation of European MPs in Dhaka on Wednesday, meeting sources said.
Earlier on March 2 last year, Dr Yunus was removed as Managing Director of the Grameen Bank he founded for lending to the poor, as a Norwegian media documentary on shady fund transfer rattled his position in his micro-finance institution.
