BERLIN (Reuters) - European Central Bank policymaker Ardo Hansson said he has not considered succeeding ECB President Mario Draghi when his job comes up next year, according to an interview in German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

"I hadn't even remotely thought about becoming Mario Draghi's successor," the paper on Monday quoted Hansson as saying.

Commenting on the ECB's asset purchasing programme, Hansson said while he believed it was too soon to declare the programme a success he saw latest developments as "encouraging".
