David Sassoli is the new president of the European Parliament, the former deputy president during the last legislature, will take the place of outgoing president Antonio Tajani.
Official candidate of the Socialists and Democrats supported also by the EPP, Sassoli was elected president with 345 favorable votes, despite the contrary votes of Lega and FdI and the abstention of Forza Italy that would have risked leaving Italy without any prominent position in this IX European legislature.
The appointment of David Sassoli as president of the European Parliament also raises hopes for Albania, which has seen itself postponing for the umpteenth time the start of the EU accession negotiations just last month.
A year ago, at the microphone of Arbër Agalliu for Albania NEWS, the newly elected president declared himself satisfied with the steps forward and the path taken by Albania towards joining the large family called the EU.
David Sassoli, who is also chairman of the Europe-Albania friendship committee, knows the country of the eagles well and is a strong supporter of Albania, who knows that the new president of the European Parliament will not be able to put pressure on the German bank that penalized the Albania and Northern Macedonia blocking the start of EU negotiations, especially after having had support in this important appointment of popular leader Manfred Weber.
