Lagarde wins EU lawmakers’ approval to lead European Central Bank

Lawmakers voted 394 in favor, 206 against and with 49 abstentions in the parliament’s plenary in Strasbourg.

A shrewd negotiator who has run the International Monetary Fund but has little monetary policy experience, Lagarde was selected in July by EU leaders to replace Mario Draghi from Nov. 1 at the helm of the bloc’s most powerful financial institution.

EU leaders will formalize her appointment at a regular summit in mid-October for an eight-year term.
