Poland confirms that it will oppose former Polish PM Tusk’s re-election as EU Council boss

POLAND today confirmed that it will oppose Donald Tusk's efforts to be re-elected as the president of the European Council for the all-important Brexit period.

The leader of the country’s ruling party, Jarosław Kaczyński, said the Polish eurocrat “cannot under any circumstances count on our support” for a second term as the head of the influential Brussels body. 

His statement comes after it was reported yesterday that Warsaw is lining up an alternative candidate to lead the bloc into talks with Theresa May, although Polish officials later played that possibility down. 

The head of the EU Council will play a vital role in the upcoming Brexit talks as a representative for the other 27 heads of government of the member states. 

And Mr Tusk has been locked in an increasingly bitter war of words with the Polish government over his actions as the country's prime minister from 2007-2014.
