Manfred Weber elected chairman of the EPP
CSU politician Manfred Weber will head Europe's largest party family, the EPP, in the future. At a congress in Rotterdam on Tuesday evening, the 49-year-old was elected unopposed with 89 percent of the vote as president of the Christian Democratic organization, to which the CDU and CSU Union parties also belong. Weber replaces former EU Council president and Polish head of government Donald Tusk, who wants to concentrate fully on national politics again.
