It was not clear whether the bank’s 24-member board would accept Wolfowitz’s terms. It is up to the board to decide what action should be taken in the matter. Pressure on Wolfowitz to resign has grown since the bank panel report, released Monday, regarding his handling of the 2005 pay package of bank employee Shaha Riza. Wolfowitz has maintained that he acted in good faith. WASHINGTON – Embattled World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz is negotiating an agreement to resign, according to an official familiar with the talks. His departure would include an acknowledgment from the bank that he doesn’t bear sole responsibility for the controversy surrounding a generous pay package for his girlfriend, the official said. The negotiations took place as the bank’s board deliberated Wolfowitz’s fate Wednesday afternoon. The official said Wolfowitz wanted the bank to accept some responsibility for conflicts of interest cited against him by a special bank panel. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the delicate state of negotiations at the bank, which uses loans and grants to fight poverty around the world. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
