VP source: Government is not involved in NBG’s procedure to select president

The government is not involved in any way in the procedure to elect a new chairman at the National Bank of Greece (NBG), a source from the vice-presidency said on Tuesday, responding to allegations made by a Democratic Coalition MP.

“The government has absolutely no involvement in the procedure to select a president at the National Bank and those who talks of government interventions have chosen the wrong target,” the source said and continued, “the government will speak extensively on the matter once the procedures that are underway are completed.”
