The Economist asks:

When will the UK prime minister or chancellor of the exchequer announce the government's choice for the next governor of the Bank of England?

The new governor of the Bank of England is expected to take office on 1 February 2020, though an announcement of the government's intended appointee has been delayed (Economist, NY Times, Parliament.uk). The prime minister and the chancellor of the exchequer advise the monarch, who officially appoints the governor of the Bank of England (Cabinetoffice.gov.uk, Gov.uk). An announcement for either a new term or extension of the current term for Governor Mark Carney would count.
