EU-Parliament wants Trichet removed from ECB-ethics committee and Draghi from G30

Yesterday, the EU-Parliament adopted a report, which calls on the ECB “to ensure that the Ethics Committee is not chaired by a former president of the ECB” and stresses that the president or board members of the ECB should not be members of the G30 or other groups which include executives from banks supervised by the ECB.

For those not familiar with the discussion around these issues, the background is here:
