ECB Executive Board STILL incomplete because Marsch is not a woman


The drama of the incomplete ECB Executive Board continues. The European Parliament strongly promotes a candidate with female features.

A European Parliament committee opposed the appointment of Luxembourg’s Yves Mersch to the European Central Bank’s Executive Board because of unhappiness about a lack of female candidates for the job.

As a woman I start being annoyed and offended to hear that the next candidate is evaluated not on the expertise but on the fact of possessing female characteristics. I thought women wanted to be judged equally for their expertise and not just be chosen for a job to make the Board look nice.

The ECB Executive Board is incomplete for half a year. Meanwhile other European institutions are organising “battle of the sexes”. No wonder it looks like Europe is not going to recover anytime soon.
