• Eurogroup: Sánchez's fiasco with Calviño weakens Spain's position to negotiate the Rescue Fund
  • Opinion Sánchez's calculation error that leaves Calviño without Eurogroup and weakened in the Government

The third vice-president of the Government and minister of Economic Affairs and for the Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, assured this Friday that Spain "had at least 10 votes cast" in yesterday's vote to be named president of the Eurogroup.

"But in the end some of the ministers did not do what they said they were going to do," added the vice president, who said that "these things happen" and that the Spanish Government knew from the beginning that getting the Presidency of the Eurogroup "would to be a difficult fight. "

"We started with significant disadvantages because there is a majority of Popular Party governments in Europe, because we already came from a Presidency of a country, not only from the South, but from a sister country; there has never been a Presidency of a large country precisely because the voting system gives more weight to small countries, not to mention that I am the only woman at that table, "Calviño has argued in statements to Onda Cero collected by Europa Press.
