Plans to place all eurozone lenders under the supervision of the ECB, hailed as a cornerstone of future political union, will miss the deadline for implementation due to EU treaty restrictions, top officials said on Saturday. A first legislative draft unveiled just 72 hours earlier was left doomed after two days of talks between finance ministers and central bank governors in Cyprus, which drove a fresh wedge between the 17 eurozone partners and the other 10 European Union states. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said it became immediately clear during a feisty debate that the target-date for adoption of January 1, 2013, was no longer attainable. “January 1st, that will not be possible,” Schaeuble said, adding that it was “not even worth having that discussion.” Swedish Finance Minister Anders Borg had already broken away to dismiss as “completely unacceptable” the proposal unveiled by EU banking commissioner Michel Barnier. The nub of the breakdown was what Barnier called a “juridical problem.” European Central Bank deputy head Victor Constancio said the ECB would decide alone whether and how to grant voting rights and influence to non-euro countries brought into the new supervisory regime, given EU treaty guarantees of independence. Asked if a treaty change may be required, a spokesman for the Cypriot EU presidency said: “There is a chance.” The lengthening list of problems — so much so that Britain’s George Osborne did not even speak out publicly on London’s own reservations — leave Barnier with a mountain to climb to meet the goal set for him by EU leaders at a June summit of installing new European-level supervision by January 1, 2013. Barnier’s proposal requires unanimity among the 27 EU states, at least a sustained attempt over a lengthy period of listening under EU lawmaking rules. “Believe me, this will not be easy” to obtain, Schaeuble said. Seen by leaders as the first step towards full economic and political union, the “banking union”, agreed to as the way out of structural problems highlighted by the debt crisis, is in turn designed to draw in non-euro countries — all but two of which are treaty-bound to move to the euro over time. The plans already faced other obstacles including a German-expressed need to establish a related resolution fund for winding down broken banks, and the role of the London-based European Banking Authority (EBA) — itself created out of the financial crisis. Sweden is a member of the EU although not the eurozone, and Borg said that “long and tough” negotiations lie ahead with “a large number of countries that are not members of the eurozone” deeming Barnier’s proposal “unacceptable.” Borg said that EU treaty guarantees of independence for the Frankfurt-based ECB — which he said would mean it was not bound by EBA mediation in case of disputes — meant there was much work to be done “before we are anywhere close to any compromise”.
