Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Belgian Finance Minister Didier Reynders said Jean-Luc Dehaene is unlikely to serve as head of Dexia SA’s nationalized Belgian unit.
“I don’t think Jean-Luc Dehaene will take over in Belgium, but to choose the president I’d really like to have specialist firms come up with candidates from among professionlas in this sector,” Reynders said today on Belgium’s RTBF radio.
Reynders said the issue of bonuses for employees of the Belgian bank will be “decided easily since the state will be a 100 percent shareholder.”
Elio Di Rupo, the president of the French-speaking Socialist Party who’s leading talks on creating a new government in Belgium, supported the caretaker government’s decision on Dexia, Reynders said.
