WASHINGTON — Lebanon has nominated investment banker Ziad Hayek as a candidate for president of the World Bank, mounting the first challenge to U.S. President Donald Trump's choice to lead the development lender, Hayek said in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
Hayek, who has served as secretary general of Lebanon's High Council for Privatization since 2006, also posted a nomination letter from Lebanon's finance ministry.
