EU Parliament all but certain to okay Lane's ECB appointment

BRUSSELS, March 14 (Reuters) - The European Parliament is almost certain to confirm Philip Lane’s appointment to the European Central Bank’s Executive Board as well as two other top European Union hirings on Thursday, a spokesman said.

“(It’s) nearly 100 percent that all appoinments will go through today,” the spokesman said. “It’s very unlikely that a last-minute decision will be taken in plenary now to postpone them.” (Reporting By Jan Strupczewski; Writing by Francesco Canepa in Frankfurt Editing by Gareth Jones)
