Irish gov't considering ECB vacancy nomination

The Irish Government has confirmed that it is considering putting forward a nomination for a vacancy on the board of the European Central Bank.

The position is expected to be given to a candidate from one of the four euro-zone countries that currently have no representation on the board. Ireland is one of the four countries.

Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny raised the matter in the Irish parliament on Thursday and was told by Agriculture Minister Joe Walsh that it was "under consideration".
