Kossi Assimaidou, a voice that counts

On 30 June, Kossi Assimaidou (photo) will have the difficult task of appointing the successor to Dominique Strauss-Kahn to head the International Monetary Fund (IMF). His voice will be decisive.
Mr. Assimaidou - originally from Togo where he served as Minister of Economy and Finance - is a director at the IMF, where he represents 24 African countries, mostly francophone, as such, he has a right to vote to elect the new head of the institution.
Two candidates clash, Christine Lagarde, French Minister of Economy and the Governor of the Central Bank of Mexico, Agustin Carstens.
Ms. Lagarde, a former lawyer, hand in central position; she enjoys the support of many European administrators, Arab and African countries.
But the games are not done yet. The vote of the United States and Japan will be crucial.
