VIENNA (Reuters) - European Central Bank policymaker Robert Holzmann said on Tuesday he has not decided how he will vote at the next rate-setting meeting in December but unless there is a significant improvement he will favour an increase of 0.75 points.

Holzmann told a news conference he could not decide between 0.5 points and 0.75 points but as things currently stood he preferred the latter.
