Tusk reelected President of EU Council

Donald Tusk has been re-elected President of the European Council, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg has confirmed, according to Euronews.

The issue was high on the agenda at today`s EU summit (March 9), Euronews reports.

His mandate ends on May 31, but was widely expected to be renewed for two and a half years.

Issues on a local political level mean Poland was against its compatriot`s re-election, but both Hungary and France came out in support of Tusk.

”For reasons of continuity, coherence and stability, I think Tusk is the candidate for the presidency of the Council and I don`t see how any country could oppose this decision,” said France`s President, Francois Hollande.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the Union`s survival is dependent on a so-called two-speed Europe.

Minus UK Prime Minister Theresa May, the leaders will meet again on Friday (March 10) to organise a `unity` summit due later in the month.
