Presidential Powers

Eric Holder

Eric Holder supported Mr Obama from early on in his presidential campaign
Barack Obama will appoint Eric Holder to the post of attorney-general, according to US media reports.

If confirmed, Mr Holder, 57, would be the first African-American to occupy the senior position.

He would also lead the administration's efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, a move Mr Obama has singled out as a priority.

He served as deputy attorney-general under Bill Clinton and currently works for law firm Covington and Burling.
