Croatian central bank Deputy Governor Boris Vujcic will be nominated to replace Governor Zeljko Rohatinski, who leaves in July, according to two officials close to the decision who declined to be identified because the nomination is not public yet.
Rohatinski told reporters yesterday that Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic didn’t offer him a third six-year term at the post. Rohatinski, who first took the post in 2000, is credited with keeping the kuna steady against the euro.
Central bank spokeswoman Dejana Rebernik declined to comment when reached today by phone.
