WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Inter-American Development Bank on Friday ousted the representative of Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro from the regional lender and voted to seat the representative of opposition leader Juan Guaido.

The IADB said in a statement the appointment of Guaido's representative, Ricardo Hausmann, was effective immediately following a vote by the lender's 48-member board of governors.
