DONALD TUSK NEW PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL

01.12.2014

On 1 December 2014, Donald Tusk, the former Prime Minister of Poland, replaced Herman Van Rompuy as the President of the European institution.

Donald Tusk was elected by the 28 EU heads of state or government - on 30 August 2014, for an initial term of 2,5 years. 


At an handover ceremony taking place in Brussels, Donald Tusk expressed his appreciation for the work of Herman Van Rompuy and outlined four of the priorities that will guide his mandate.

The new President recognised the outstanding contribution of Herman Van Rompuy in steering Europe out of the economic crisis. He indicated that he will keep working with the same important principles that guided the action of his predecessor: trust, common sense, moderation, and decency.

Donald Tusk also explained what he wants to achieve for Europe in these difficult times: he is deeply committed to protect the EU fundamental values of freedom and solidarity, and preserve the unity of the EU against internal and external threats; 
he is strongly determined to end the economic crisis and feels responsible to complete a genuine Economic and Monetary Union; internationally, he wants the EU to be strong and support countries in the neighbourhood who share the same democratic values; he emphasised that the transatlantic relations between Europe and the United States are the backbone of the community of democracies.
