IMF Comments on Iceland’s Central Bank Bill

By Iceland Review

The Prime Minister’s Office has received comments from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on technical matters regarding the government’s bill on changes to the senior management of the Central Bank.

The exact nature of these comments has not been revealed, Fréttabladid reports.

The bill will be discussed at the Althingi parliament’s trade committee today and, according to Fréttabladid’s sources, it is hoped that it will be passed by parliament as early as mid-next week.

Once the bill takes legal effect, the two remaining governors of the Central Bank, Eiríkur Gudnason and Davíd Oddsson, will automatically be suspended.

They have both refused to resign and Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir is not expected to suspend them before the bill takes effect.
