Mark Carney could once again remain as chairman of the Bank of England if the Brexit deadline is postponed from the scheduled date of October 31. He may be asked to do so by the UK government, the Financial Times reported, citing knowledgeable sources. Carney's tenure as head of the British Central Bank was due to end in 2018. Repeated postponements of the country's exit from the EU forced him to give two times consent to continue acting as the head of the Central Bank. He last agreed to extend the strings until January 31, 2020. Theresa May's finance ministry has promised this autumn to decide on a new head of the Central Bank to succeed Carney. However, due to the change of government, the list of candidates prepared earlier became irrelevant.
