Daniele Nouy got the green light from the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Thursday to chair the European Central Bank's Supervisory Board, the EU's newly-established watchdog tasked with directly overseeing the EU's largest banks as well as the work of national bank supervisors.

The appointment of Ms Nouy, currently secretary-general of France's bank and insurance supervisory authority, was approved by 29 votes to 0, with 1 abstention.

The committee's endorsement now has to be confirmed by the full Parliament next week.
