Carney to helm BOE for additional year beyond his term

He will now most likely stay as central bank chief through final negotiations by Britain on exit from EU

Some pro-Brexit politicians have sought Mr Carney's resignation, saying he had politicised the central bank ahead of the vote on whether to leave the EU.


MARK Carney, the Bank of England (BOE) governor, said he would serve an additional year as head of the central bank and step down in June 2019. The decision dispels suggestions in the British press that Mr Carney would step down in 2018, his original five-year time frame.
