Now You Can Choose the President of the European Council!

Fondation Robert Schuman is giving you a unique opportunity – to choose the first President of the European Council! Naturally, your vote won’t be counted during the summit next week, but then – who knows?

You can choose from Vaira Vike-Freiberga, Jean-Claude Juncker, Tony Blair, Herman Van Rompuy and Jan Peter Balkenende.

 

One response to “Now You Can Choose the President of the European Council!

  1. Of the candidates listed only two stand out, for me. First – easily my favourite – would be Herman Van Rompuy. An able diplomat and negotiator – where would belgium be without his ability to stitch together a working government? And that is the major drawback of his appointment as President of the EU Council. Wher would Belgium be without him? This is a question that other EU leaders ought to weigh in their considerations.

    So, my second choice has to be Vaira Vike-Freiberga. She has shown her support for moral issues – and Latvians appreciated her Presidency, it seems. She also speaks several European languages, including French. And that counts.
