The European Council is composed of the political Heads of State of all the member countries of the EUROPEAN UNION. The permanent President is Herman Van Rumpuy. The object of the Council is to guide the policies of the EUROPEAN UNION.
Nicholas Sarkozy, the President of France has been very active during the last two years concerning the "Greek Euro" problem. One cannot say that the decisions proposed by him and Angela Merkel have convinced everyone.
If Sarkozy is not re-elected it could mean that François Hollande, a Socialist, who is to-day the leader in opinion polls, could become the next President of France and would replace Sarkozy as the representative of France in the EU Council !!! It is not at all sure that he would adopt the same policy as Sarkozy on the "Greek Euro" problem !!!
Whenever any EU leader is not re-elected, changes must be anticipated and expected, but which ones ?
