Poland Unable to Stop Tusk’s EU Reelection

EU leaders have reelected Donald Tusk as president of the European Council despite a bid to oust him by his home country, Poland. The leaders voted 27 to one to give him another two-and-a-half-year term. The Polish government insisted Tusk, a former PM from a rival party, had violated his mandate by interfering in domestic politics, BBC reported.
Poland's prime minister said she would refuse to sign off on the summit's final statement in protest. "Poland has a right to veto the conclusions and Poland is exercising that right," Beata Szydlo added. She added that Tusk was not impartial.
"He does not have the support of his home country; that's sufficient reason for him not to be appointed."
Szydlo made no attempt to disguise her fury at the reappointment of fellow Pole Tusk to steer EU policy for another 30 months.
