Poland’s PM urges deep changes in EU

Poland’s prime minister has used a spat between her country and other EU member states over the re-election of Donald Tusk to an EU top job to illustrate the need that she sees for deep changes in the club. Beata Szydlo spoke Friday following a summit that re-elected Tusk as head of the European Council against opposition from his native country, Poland. Szydlo, who heads a nationalist government, said the vote ignored Poland’s opinion and thus exposed EU’s imperfections. She said those problems should be mended, or the union will face new divisions. She said a declaration to be signed at a special summit in Rome later this month should guarantee equal rights to all members and clearly indicate the direction of EU reforms.
