Once prime minister of Poland, then president of the European Council, and later the leader of the European People’s Party, Donald Tusk is now back in Polish politics.
“I’m back in 100 percent,” he told a congress of Civic Platform (PO), the conservative-liberal party he founded in 2001.
Donald Tusk is now the head of the European People’s Party, the EU’s largest grouping of center-right parties, but he made clear that he’s diving back into national politics to lead the charge against PiS.
According to Politico.eu, he’s got one goal — to defeat the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party that governs Poland.
“The evil that PiS is performing is evident, shameless and permanent. It’s happening every day, in almost every matter”, said Tusk.
The PO party lost power to PiS in 2015. Before it, Tusk led Civic Platform to two electoral victories and ruled Poland from 2007 to 2014.
