United States Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Wednesday that she still expects Larry Page to testify in Congress, a day after he stepped down as chief executive of Alphabet Inc, Google's parent company.
"We do still expect you to testify before Congress," she said in a tweet while congratulating Page on "the move".
She added that while Google co-founder Page's title may have changed, he is still a part of Alphabet's board of directors and retains "effective control".
Sundar Pichai, who has been the chief executive officer of Alphabet's Google for four years now, succeeded Page at the helm of Alphabet on Tuesday, making him the public face of a company long associated with its iconic founders.
Congrats on the move, Larry Page! Quick reminder: We do still expect you to testify before Congress. And changing your title while staying on the board and retaining effective control of it will not exempt you from accountability.https://t.co/Hr0w3Kz6zg
