Hasn't this supposedly already occurred with Slovakia taking presiding role earlier in the year? Since their PM saying Islam has no place in their country and Muslim immigrants change the culture of any nation they inhabit, which he says he will never allow to happen to Slovakia and he wouldn't let a single Mosque be built (it's the only nation in the EU with no functioning Mosque's)

...yet the presiding role doesn't suddenly let you change the attitude of the EU in it's entirety.

the role of the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU is minor

its most important role is to try and work out compromises in case of difficulties in reaching a consensus for Council decisions

He's not the President of the European Union (which doesn't exist). Slovakia currently holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union but firstly, this is held by the Slovakian government, not any individual, and secondly the Slovakian term is nearly over now and quite clearly nothing of the sort has happened.

he seems quite disinformed about the EU's institutional setup. There is no such thing as an "EU President"

He could still be Muslim. Or it could be a pseudonym.

And yea. Gotta love disclaimers.

theres a president of the council, and the commission, these fools.

Also could barely get through the news article editorial because it went from EU "President" to "Slovakia." I...failed to see the connect.

yes,there is a 6-month rotating presidency of the Council of the EU, at present held by Slovakia (until December 31) : it is mainly responsible for organising the internal work of the Council of the EU. But there is no "president" in particular , and mostly the "presidency" works as a "trio" (former, present, and future presidency) http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/co...cy-council-eu/

There are, on the other hand, a President of the European Council (former Polish PM, Donald Tusk), a President of the Commission (Juncker), of the European Parliament (Schulz) etc etc

The article is clearly from before the brexit vote, never mind that the "EU President" role doesn't exist.
