LONDON, July 11 (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Mark Carney declined to comment on whether he was interested in succeeding Christine Lagarde as head of the International Monetary Fund, saying he was committed to an orderly transition to whoever succeeds him at the BoE.
"There's a few orderly transitions and one of them is an orderly (Brexit) transition through Oct. 31 and an orderly transition to my successor and of course I'll make sure that that is the case," Carney told reporters on Thursday when asked if he might be the IMF's next managing director.
Carney, a Canadian, is due to stand down as BoE governor at the end of January 2020.
On Tuesday, France's finance ministry denied a media report that France and Germany had struck an agreement to back Carney to run the IMF.
