The controversial election of Donald Tusk
When electing Donald Tusk as its president, the European Council recognized that a member state cannot block a candidate who is a political opponent of the incumbent government of his or her country. The explanation given by Donald Tusk, that he is a guardian of EU values, is unconvincing. In May 2015, when the Civic Platform was still in power, Tusk supported Bronisław Komorowski in Poland’s presidential elections. Hence, the question arises: what values was Tusk defending then? Ryszard Legutko, MEP, filed a complaint to the European Ombudsman. Regrettably, it has never been reviewed, which shows that impinging on the principle of impartiality and political neutrality by the President of the European Council is not a new issue.
