Emboldened EU Parliament backs Schulz for second term

Published: 07.01.14, 15:37 / Israel News

BRUSSELS - The European Parliament on Tuesday chose Martin Schulz as its president for another two and half years, backing a combative social democrat who has fought for more power for the EU legislature.


The extension of the German lawmaker's term follows the parliament's success in getting its candidate, Jean-Claude Juncker, nominated as European Commission President and shows lawmakers' determination to have a greater say in Europe.


Of 612 valid votes cast in the parliament's seat in Strasbourg, 409 were for Schulz. (Reuters)
