Tusk Denies Berlusconi Claim
May 20, 2009   
Article's tools:

Polish politicians have flatly denied Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's recent claim that Poland has agreed to withdraw Jerzy Buzek as Poland's nominee for European Parliament president in exchange for Italy's support for Poland's Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz for the post of secretary of the Council of Europe.

Berlusconi said May 9 in Rome there was a good chance that Italy's Mario Mauri would become president of the European Parliament if Poland withdrew its own candidate.

Paweł Gra¶, spokesman for Donald Tusk's government, said "there has been no bargaining" over the issue.

Speaking at PO's campaign rallies, Tusk said he could "secure" the job of European Parliament president for Buzek, a former prime minister of Poland and now a Eurodeputy, if PO scored a landslide victory in this country's European Parliament elections. But many opposition politicians say Poland's efforts to fill the two prestigious posts may end in a defeat on both fronts.
