European Union states will take into account age limits when they decide on their candidate to succeed Christine Lagarde at the helm of the International Monetary Fund, Finland's Finance Minister Mika Lintila told a news conference on Tuesday.

The remark appeared to contradict media reports that identified current European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, 71, as a possible candidate. IMF rules require candidates for the post of managing director to be less than 65 years old.
