Pope taps Draghi for Science Academy

Former ECB chief named to social science body

(ANSA) - VATICAN CITY, JUL 10 - Pope Francis on Friday named former European Central Bank President Mario Draghi a member of the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences.
    As well as Draghi, Francis also tapped Pedro Morandé Court, an emeritus professor of Sociology at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, and Kokunre Adetokunbo Agbontaen Eghafona, professor of sociology and anthropology at the 'University of Benin in Nigeria.
    Draghi has been tipped by some for a political career in Italy.
    Quizzed about his post-ECB plans, he said "ask my wife".
    Draghi was replaced at the helm of the central bank by former IMF managing director Christine Lagarde last year after years of "doing what it takes" to protect the euro. (ANSA).
