Martin Schulz Re-elected President of European Parliament

Dubbed by European media as “king of backroom deals,” Schulz secured a second two-and-a-half year term as President of the European Parliament with 409 votes out of 619. The voting was secret, however he was backed by enough members of the center-right European People’s Party (EPP), the liberal Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), and his own party, the center left Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D).
