German EU Commissioner calls for French ECB president after Draghi
BERLIN (Reuters) - European Commissioner Guenther Oettinger is in favor of a French person taking the helm at the European Central Bank when President Mario Draghi’s term expires in October 2019, a German newspaper reported.
“It would be best to have a German European Commission President and a clever Frenchman as head of the ECB,” business daily Handelsblatt cited Oettinger as saying.
