(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 3 – Mario Draghi is respected and admired
at the European Central Bank and beyond, European Commission
Vice President Margaritis Schinas said after the former ECB
chief credited with saving the euro got a government-formation
mandate in Italy.
    “It is not a big surprise if I say that Mario Draghi is
respected and admired within the ECB and beyond,” said Schinas,
who is tasked with promoting the European way of life.
    He said it was up to the Italian government and democratic
institutions to decide Italy’s future.
    Draghi got a mandate from President Sergio Mattarella to try and
see if he can form a “high-profile” technocrat government of no
particular political stripe to steer Italy through the COVID
pandemic and the economic recovery from it.
    The centre-right opposition to outgoing premier Giuseppe Conte
have said they want to press on for a snap general election
while the biggest former government party, the populist 5-Star
Movement (M5S), is split on whether to back Draghi, who earned
the nickname ‘Super Mario’ for doing “whatever it takes” to save
the euro during the 2011-2012 sovereign debt crisis. (ANSA).
