The German Federal Government called for the support of the candidacy of Polish politician Donald Tusk for a second term as president of the European Council. In particular, the state minister at the Foreign Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany Michael Roth argued that Tusk is trustworthy among the heads of states and governments of many EU member countries, and therefore he must remain in office for a second term, reports DW.

"This is a clear signal which should be understanded by those who currently have problems with the re-election of Tusk to the post of European Council Chairman," he said.

According to Roth, there are some "obvious reservations" from the governments of Poland and Hungary regarding the re-election of Tusk to this post.

Earlier Poland officially refused to support the re-election of former Prime Minister, the current President of the European Council Donald Tusk for the next 2.5-year cadence. As an alternative to him  Warsaw called MEP Jacek Saryusz-Wolski.
