Tunisia Appoints Ayari as New Central Bank Governor

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Tunisia’s parliament approved the appointment of Chadli Ayari as central bank governor, according to the assembly’s president, Mustapha Ben Jaafar.

The parliament voted by 96 deputies to 89 today in favor of Ayari’s appointment in place of Mustapha Kamel Nabli, who was dismissed last month by President Moncef Marzouki citing splits over economic policy, Ben Jaafar told reporters in Tunis.

Ayari, 75, was an economy minister under Tunisia’s first post-independence president, Habib Bourguiba. He worked as an economist for international organizations and chaired the Committee for Industrial Development at the United Nations and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa. He is also an executive director of the World Bank Group and member of the advisory board of the African Development Bank.
