EU congratulates new Spanish PM

BRUSSELS, President of the European Council Donald Tusk on Friday congratulated Pedro Sanchez on his appointment as the new Prime Minister of Spain.

“Your appointment comes at a challenging time for Europe. European unity is now more needed than ever. I trust that you and your government will play a constructive role in the European Union,” he said in his congratulatory message.

Tusk said he looks forward “to working with you, and to welcoming you at the European Council (EU summit ) in June.” Earlier today, ex-Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy was forced out of office by a no-confidence vote in parliament.
