Discussion among the finance ministers of the 19 eurozone countries is informal, with a vote scheduled only for Tuesday when they will have to decide between the Spaniard and Ireland's central bank governor Philip Lane.
The decision could be made by consensus but if there were to be a vote, the successful candidate would have to get 14 out of the 19 votes and these would have to represent 65% of the EZ population.
