MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador nominated left-leaning economist Gerardo Esquivel and independent economist Jonathan Heath to serve on the central bank’s five-member board, according to a post on a congressional website on Wednesday.

Lawmakers will need to approve Lopez Obrador’s nominations, which had been informally announced previously.
