Draghi for president of Italy? Ask his wife

Mario Draghi refused to rule himself out of Italys political scene once he leaves the European Central Bank next week.

The ECBs departing president was asked, at his last press conference in Frankfurt, if he would exclude any political role in his homeland of Italy.

“I dont know,” Draghi said. “If you want more information, just ask my wife. She will know [about my future]. I hope she does.”

Thursdays press conference was Draghis swan song after eight years leading the ECB. At his final meeting, the institution left policy unchanged from its September decision to cut its interest rate and resume buying bonds to keep the eurozone economy afloat.

Reporters used the occasion to probe Draghi on his legacy as well as his future, which earlier this year was rife with rumors that hed return to Rome to become the president of the republic.
