Notice some familiar pattern here with some troublesome countries? I'm not suggesting that the ECB might be too South European here even though 5/6 of the ECB's executive board is from countries with laissez faire approach to public finances. All the members of the ECB's executive board have been approved by all eurozone members. It is a bit anecdotal though since you would be looking for countries like Germany, Finland and Netherlands to be the guardians of the euro.
