International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn averred he is “totally engaged” with his present role, Bloomberg reports.
Strauss-Kahn was earlier reported to be mulling an early exit from IMF to enter the French presidential race in 2012. His term with the fund ends in October 2012.
A February survey indicated he was more popular than French President Nicolas Sarkozy in the country.
“You may have political activity in one part of your life and be an international civil servant in another part of your life,” Strauss-Kahn said April 4 in Amman, Jordan, as quoted by Bloomberg. “Some people may have different training, different paths and do something different with the rest of their lives. Nowadays, I am totally engaged with the IMF and only with the IMF.”
