Former German President Horst Koehler will join a commission advising the Group of 20 nations, the newspaper Die Zeit said, citing unnamed banking sources.
Koehler, a former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, resigned as Germany’s mainly ceremonial head of state on May 31. He cited public criticism over remarks he made about Germany’s military mission in Afghanistan as his reason for standing down.
Die Zeit said that the French government plans to set up the G-20 commission.
