misinformation, my friend.
its impossible for the new Eu president was chosen unanimously. if you had followed the debates all over the european media you wouldve known that
extensive negotiations have been going on for weeks, between the big and the small states.
the verdict was finally announced on a round table conference between all the heads of states in brussels last saturday, where EVERY memberstate
expressed its support for candidate Van Rompuy (who was pushed forward by germany and france).
Also, take a look at the Lisbon treaty and you will find it takes unanimous consensus between the heads of state to choose the president.
