Donald Tusk taking charge of European Council

Donald Tusk becomes the second full-time president of the European Council on Monday. Tusk, who was democratic Poland’s longest-serving prime minister before resigning in September just short of seven years in office, will be in charge of chairing European Union’s summits and brokering behind-the-scenes deals.

He will be the first EU president to come from a former communist bloc state. The 18-member eurozone is struggling to emerge from a crisis, while Britain is threatening secession over the EU’s immigration regulations which London deems harmful to Britain’s economy. Europe also lacks unity on policy toward Russia.
