Germany's Constitutional Court said it will examine whether to postpone its long-awaited verdict on the eurozone's €500bn ESM rescue fund and the EU fiscal pact given a new legal challenge by a leading eurosceptic politician.


The court verdict is the last legal hurdle for the ESM before it can come into effect. Until now, the court had been scheduled to deliver its ruling on Wednesday.

But it could now be held up following Gauweiler's latest complaint on Sunday, in which he challenged last week's decision by the European Central Bank to launch a bond-buying programme.
