Christine Lagarde, the French finance minister, claimed India had reversed its opposition to a European appointment to head the International Monetary Fund and had accepted the winning candidate should be chosen regardless of origin.
Ah, the perils of European power politics. A day after France revealed its new government, the person who so eagerly stepped in after DSK's infamous and choreographed fall from grace and the IMF presidency (not to mention his derailed French presidential ambitions, greenlighting Hollande as what would become the worst French president ever), Christine Lagarde is about to be DSKed herself after "someone" clearly has set their sights on the former French finance minister.
Christine Lagarde, one of the most powerful women in the world as managing director of the International Monetary Fund, is facing acute embarrassment after a letter in which she urged former French President Nicolas Sarkozy to "use me" was found during a police raid on her Paris flat.
THE International Monetary Fund has announced its selection of Christine Lagarde, currently the French finance minister, as its new managing director.

Ms Lagarde's term will begin on July 5.
