VIENNA (Reuters) - European Central Bank policymaker Ewald Nowotny said on Thursday he takes a very positive view of European Union leaders' decision to name Christine Lagarde president of the ECB.
Although he had previously said he would like to see Bundesbank chief Jens Weidmann succeed Mario Draghi in the top ECB job, he told a news conference that Lagarde had proven herself as head of the International Monetary Fund.
