Obama to hold another news conference Wednesday

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Barack Obama will hold a news conference at 1140 EST/1640 GMT on Wednesday, his fifth since he began naming nominees for his cabinet.

A statement from Obama’s office did not give a reason for Wednesday’s meeting.

Last week Obama announced members of his economic team including his nominee for Treasury secretary, New York Federal Reserve President Timothy Geithner, and this week he unveiled his national security team including his designate for Secretary of State, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.
