Communiqué de presse du groupe S&D
The Socialists and Democrats rejected the appointment of Luis de Guindos as European central bank’s vice-president during a vote taking place today in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. For several reasons, the S&D Euro MPs were never convinced with the current Spanish finance minister’s candidacy. They called on the president of the Eurogroup, Mário Centeno, the president of the ECOFIN, and the president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, to improve the procedure of selection for top jobs in the EU institutions, and urge president Tajani to raise the issue in the EU heads of state and government meeting next week in Brussels.
