  • Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Friday the Netherlands was pushing a strong candidate of its own to be new International Monetary Fund (IMF) president – but declined to confirm who.
  • Jeroen Dijsselbloem, a 53-year-old former Dutch finance minister who also chaired the Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers during the Greek financial crisis, is widely thought to be in the running to replace Christine Lagarde.
  • Lagarde has been nominated to become the new European Central Bank president in October.
