Van Rompuy reappointed as EU President

Van Rompuy reappointed as EU president(Brussels) – Leaders of European Union have reappointed Herman Van Rompuy as European Union President for a second 30-month term and have also appointed him as the chairman of the Eurozone.
“It is with pleasure that I accept a second mandate. A privilege to serve Europe in such decisive times; also a big responsibility,” said Van Rompuy in a posting on microblogging site Twitter. “I also thank the members of the European Council for the invitation to chair the euro summit meetings, which I accept,” he added.
There are scant details available about his new duties as head of the eurozone, other than to chair twice-yearly euro summit meetings and “keep the non-euro area member states closely informed of the preparation and outcome of the summits”, according to EU statements.
