Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The ECB is currently not fulfilling its mandate because its (self-defined) mandate is to keep inflation "below (but close to) 2% over the medium(-to-long) term" and it is failing on that score. The ECB should be reflating the economy, but it isn't.

That's what's meant by "Weidmann advocates not fulfilling its mandate".

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
