The candidate put forward by euro-area governments for the European Central Bank’s Executive Board, Frank Elderson, received the blessing from the European Parliament last night.
Our political group will start to work with Frank Elderson in delivering on the initiatives to promote diversity and gender mainstreaming that go beyond the ECB and include national central banks and the banks directly and indirectly supervised by the ECB.
Stéphanie Yon-Courtin MEP, Vice President of ECON and Vice-Coordinator of Renew Europe members of the ECON committee said;
"Frank Elderson is the right pick to bring the ECB forward on sustainable monetary policy. His commitments to gender equality should be an inspiration for Member States that still refuse to deliver gender-balanced shortlists for EU top jobs. Renew will not give up ! "
