Donald Tusk was confirmed as EU’s Council President, Poland opposed


“I don’t see how one country could oppose this solution when all the others are in favor,” said French President Francois Hollande. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat of Malta, which holds the EU rotating presidency, said Poland decided that “politically irrespective of the contents of the conclusions, to veto, or at least not agree with any of the conclusions.” Poland’s nationalist government had proposed little-known Polish EU lawmaker Jacek Saryusz-Wolski to replace Tusk, whose current term ends May 31.”I will do my best to make EU better,” Tusk said in a tweet. “The EU has chosen a politician who has “broken all rules” of the Union,” said Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of Poland’s governing party. “Above all, the rule of neutrality,” he added. Government officials had criticized Tusk of overstepping his mandate and interfering in local Polish politics.
