TUSK TAKES OVER LEADERSHIP OF POLAND’S LARGEST OPPOSITION PARTY

Former European Union (EU) Council president and former Polish prime minister Donald Tusk is returning to politics in his home country, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) reported.

The 64-year-old is once again taking over the leadership of the largest opposition party after the party conference of the liberal-conservative Civic Platform (PO) unanimously elected him as deputy party leader on Saturday in Warsaw.


Tusk also takes over the function of chairman on a provisional basis. The previous party leader, Borys Budka, had earlier resigned to clear the way for Tusk's return.

In a spirited speech, Tusk swore his party to a more decisive fight against the conservative nationalist ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party.


"Today, evil reigns in Poland," he said. The PiS, he said, has picked fights with the EU, Germany and even the Czech Republic and alienated the country from the current US administration through its "idiotic political investment" in former president Donald Trump.


For Tusk to become the regular party leader, he still has to be confirmed by the party members in a vote. The date for this has not yet been set.
