It means Weidmann still wants the job when Draghi leaves as head of ECB.
Fairly blatant attempt by Weidmann to appeal to Germans for support.
If Weidmann does get it then market will run up Euro until next financial crisis takes it down again.
Weidmann in and Italian exit next.
The move for replacing Draghi with a German is most likely the reason Salvini is raising some noise. For all the yak about central bank independence an appointment to head it is as political decision as it gets.
Spains Luis de Guindos a more likely pick as he already has experienced being Vice President and represents continuity.
