December European Council - First for Donald Tusk

On December 18-19 will take place the final EU summit - the December European Council. Usually, at this summit the leaders of the member states make a summary of the past year and outline their plans for the coming year. What makes this December European Council special is that it will be the first for the second in EU's history president of the European Council - Donald Tusk, who took over from Herman Van Rompuy on 1 December. Apart from that, this summit is taking place in a very complicated geopolitical situation. The main topics on the agenda are the creation of an energy union, for which an historic opportunity has opened recently, the change of approach for Bosnia and Herzegovina, the economic situation in the EU and the euro area in particular. This year's December European Council will be "first" also for Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, who was elected for a second time earlier this year.
