The European Central Bank’s governing council has nominated European Banking Authority head Andrea Enria to take over from Danièle Nouy as the eurozone’s chief banking supervisor.
Enria’s appointment as head of the Single Supervisory Mechanism and head of the ECB’s supervisory board is now extremely likely, although not yet confirmed. The European parliament will have to approve his candidacy. Lawmakers in the parliament have already questioned him behind closed doors over his candidacy.
