Japan PM Abe Close to Selecting Head of Central Bank

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is close to selecting his nominee for governor of the Bank of Japan and a decision could come in the next few days, sources close to the process told Reuters.

They said Toshiro Muto, a former finance ministry bureaucrat, is the leading candidate for the top job after the field of potential candidates was honed down.

The sources declined to be identified because the decision is still pending and discussions remain private.
