Rome, January 15 - Mario Draghi is determined to
finish his term as European Central Bank chief and is not
considering becoming Italian president, an ECB spokesperson said
Tuesday.
"His mandate lasts eight years, until October 31, 2019, and
the president is determined to complete his term," said an ECB
statement.
Earlier Tuesday, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said that his
People of Freedom (PdL) party would vote to have Draghi named
Italian president if he were among the possible candidates.
Former Bank of Italy governor Draghi became ECB president
in November 2011 and he has widely been credited with saving the
euro by announcing plans last year to support the bonds of
states facing soaring borrowing costs.
The seven-year term of Italian President Giorgio Napolitano
is coming to an end and the current head of state has said he
will not seek another.
