Whereas:

(2)

Decision ECB/2008/23 of 12 December 2008 on the national central banks’ percentage shares in the key for subscription to the European Central Bank’s capital (2) provides for the adjustment of the key for subscription to the ECB’s capital (hereinafter the ‘capital key’) in accordance with Article 29.3 of the ESCB Statute and establishes with effect from 1 January 2009 the new weightings assigned to each NCB in the adjusted capital key (hereinafter the ‘capital key weightings’).

(3)

The ECB’s subscribed capital is EUR 5 760 652 402,58.

(4)

The adjusted capital key requires the adoption of a new ECB decision repealing Decision ECB/2006/26 with effect from 1 January 2009 and determining the percentage of the ECB’s subscribed capital which the NCBs of the Member States that will not have adopted the euro by 1 January 2009 (hereinafter the ‘non-participating NCBs’) are under an obligation to pay up with effect from 1 January 2009,
