Luis de Guindos: Greens object to the candidate after weak performance

Directly after the hearing of Luis de Guindos in the European Parliament’s economic and monetary affairs committee MEP Sven Giegold, financial and economic policy spokesperson of the Greens/EFA group comments:

“De Guindos did not demonstrate the knowledge of monetary policy needed for the vice-president of the ECB. He answered all more technical questions like a politician rather than as a central banker. The ECB leadership deserves a more qualified candidate. Greens wil vote against De Guindos.“
