The head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and head of the Eurogroup of finance ministers has hit back at critics of the European Central Bank, saying that politicians should refrain from public criticism of the central bank or its President, Mario Draghi.
“Mr Draghi has to do his work in independence and that means us politicians really restrain ourselves in comments and opinions,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem told CNBC on Friday.
“He has to take decisions that are good for the euro zone as a whole within his mandate and that’s exactly what the ECB is doing and the more we refrain from comments the more effective he can be,” he said.
