ECB worries about election outcome

European Central Bank Governing Council member Ewald Nowotny said that he sees risk for the European debt crisis in the Greek elections, according to an interview with Vorarlberger Nachrichten on Saturday.

“I see risks in the political area,” Nowotny, who also heads Austria’s central bank, told the paper. “Elections are due in early May and I’m not sure that there will be a majority that continues the current economic program.”

Italy and Spain have carried out reforms and now have to be given time, Nowotny also said, adding that the situation in Portugal and Ireland has improved. “The biggest risk is Greece,” he told the paper.

Nowotny also said that he sees the announced review of 110 European banks by Moody’s Investors Service as potentially “unsettling” Europe, according to the report.
