FYI: Council presidency is movingPosted: June 30, 2011
It is the time of the year again, when the Council presidency – maybe Chairmanship would be a better word – moves from one member state to another. Of course, there is not much going on with a Council presidency, now that an actual president is in place, but still, the rotating presidency, even depleted from its meaning is going to stay for the pride of the member states… For the second half of the year, Poland is taking over from Hungary.
Some of us might remember that in January, the Hungarian presidency sparked a controversy around a law restricting the media, and other conservative moves from the government. Times has passed and it’s not on people’s minds anymore. The euro-blogging community will remember from this six months that they had access for the first time to official events.
Time now to get into the Polish presidency. The official website is here.
