Minister of Finance Trygve Slagsvold Vedum (SP) told the newspaper Dagbladet that he does not want to rush when it comes to appointing a new central bank governor.

This week, too, the government will not appoint a new central bank governor, Dagbladet was told. 

The next opportunity will thus be Friday next week.

“I have told the government, that manages this process, that they should spend the time they need and carry out the hiring process in a good and thorough way. Then I will look at the position they come up with, and, in the end, have the last word,” Vedum noted.

The final decision will have to be approved by Vedum.

Survey

In a survey Kantar carried out for TV 2 earlier this month, two out of three Norwegians answered that they wanted Deputy Governor Ida Wolden Bache as the new governor rather than NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

At the same time, several NATO countries, including Germany and the United States, have been trying to get Stoltenberg to take on a new term as NATO leader, something that he, according to the newspaper VG, rejected a few months ago.
