"Spain presents the candidacy of Nadia Calviño for the Presidency of the Eurogroup , a key body for cooperation between members of the euro zone and the construction of a stronger European Union," the government announced on Twitter. After weeks of speculation, the candidacy of the economic vice president for the Presidency of the Eurogroup was formalized after the departure of the Portuguese Mário Centeno .

"The Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez , believes that it would be an honor for the Government of Spain if Nadia Calviño could preside over the Eurogroup, a responsibility that Spain has never exercised and that a woman has never performed before," the SEC said in a statement. . Today was the deadline for submitting applications.

When the resignation of Centeno was known on June 9, the name of Calviño was among the favorites but Spain had to take the final step to the candidacy. Sources from La Moncloa transferred to Servimedia that it is "perfect" to occupy one of the most coveted community positions and to which Spain aspired strongly at the end of 2017 when it came to happening to Jeroen Dijsselbloen . But the then Minister of Economy, Luis de Guindos , decided to stay out of the race due to the force that precisely the candidacy of the Portuguese Mário Centeno, the Slovak Peter Kazimir and the Latvian Dana Reizniece-Ozla had received , reports Servimedia.

Spain then took a step back so as not to repeat the bittersweet flavor that meant staying out of the aspiration for the same position in 2015, when he was appointed to the Dijsselbloen position although De Guindos started with high options at the time.

With the Eurogroup it is the second opportunity to play for the Executive with Calviño in international positions of great importance. Just a year ago, her name was among the possible options to occupy the general direction of the International Monetary Fund that left the French Christine Lagarde to preside over the European Central Bank (ECB) and that ended in Kristalina Georgieva .
