European Council President Donald Tusk was elected the new leader of the European People's Party (EPP) late on Nov. 21.

Axar.az reports citing Hurriyet Daily that the representatives of the center-right party from 40 countries voted at a general assembly and Tusk was chosen with 93 percent of the vote.

The EPP is the largest bloc in the European Parliament.

Mentioning in his speech that he will be leaving his post as Council president at the end of November, he said he is ready to fight “populists, manipulators, and autocrats.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also attended the assembly. She said they want to build bridges in Europe and this is one of the EPP's tasks.
