March 9th 2017 Tusk was elected President of the European Council by 27 Presidents of the European Union. Only the polish president voted against Tusk. In the morning Merkel held a speech in the Bundestag and made it clear that Tusk has to be elected. It was a clear message from Berlin to other EU-Presidents before the election in Brussels.
Election not democratic. This election of the President of the European Council is the proof of the bankruptcy of the european policy. 28 Presidents of European countries were invited to elect the President of the European Council. The folk had no right to decide.
The Polish government is talking about a putsch organized by Berlin. The President of the European Council is the official representative of the European Union in the world. Tusk is a puppet in the hands of Berlin. The election of Tusk shows that Germany is the commander of the European Union at every levels.
