Serhat TUNAR -TDO- European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi is set to hand over that post to former International Monetary Fund (IMF) head Christine Lagarde on October 31. Draghi is known as the one who saved the euro during a period of economic crisis that began in Greece in 2009-2010 and quickly spread across Europe. After surviving the crisis period, Mario Draghi was nicknamed "Super Mario".
Draghi, who served as president of the European Central Bank for 8 years, was answering questions from the Press on 24 July 2012 and stated that he would never leave the euro and that the European Central Bank would protect the Euro no matter what. According to experts, Greece was not excluded from the Euro zone thanks to the work of the European Central Bank, despite differences of opinion among European Union countries. In the nearly 7 years since the crisis, 11 million people have been employed in the Eurozone..
Mario Draghi, who is preparing to bid farewell to his post, will hand over his post to Christine Lagarde on October 31, while a bell will be presented to the new European Central Bank President.
