MILAN (Reuters) - The foundation of Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena
Shareholders will be asked to vote on the proposal at a meeting scheduled for Nov. 24.
Sources told Reuters on Saturday that Falciai was the only available candidate to take up the post.
Once confirmed, Falciai, a Monte dei Paschi board member and head of the bank's nomination committee, will replace Massimo Tononi who has said he would step down after the November shareholder meeting. Falciai is also a Monte dei Paschi investor with a stake of just under 2 percent.
Monte dei Paschi, the world's oldest bank, needs to raise a total of 5 billion euros ($5.57 billion) by the end of the year or risk being wound down. It is racing to raise the cash and offload some 28 billion euros in bad loans at below book value.
