Sarkozy Campaign Speech Targets ECB’s Role in Boosting Growth

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to the biggest rally of his re-election bid, said the European Central Bank should do more to promote economic growth, reviving an issue he raised in his 2007 campaign.

“On the question of the ECB’s role in boosting growth, we French are going to open the debate,” Sarkozy told a crowd today in central Paris that his aides estimated at more than 100,000. “If Europe is not going to sink in the international economy, it must renew with growth.”
