Belgium has chosen its candidate for the Secretary General of the Council of Europe 01:00

The Belgian government plans to nominate European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders, who was responsible for developing a plan to block and seize Russian assets, for the post of Secretary General of the Council of Europe. The local newspaper writes about it Soir.

As noted in the broadcast, kingdom officials are due to officially announce their decision in the coming days. According to journalists, this may happen before January 10.

At the same time, the elections for the Secretary General of the Council of Europe are planned to be held in June this year. The material emphasizes that if Reynders participates in the election process, he will have to obtain permission from the European Commission to organize and run the election campaign.

At the same time, the authors of the article noted that the commissioner initially intended to continue his career as an official of the European Union (EU). The Belgian liberal Reform Movement party was expected to top the electoral list and take part in the upcoming regional parliamentary elections.

However, according to the publication, the royal government entrusted the relevant work to another politician. The publication explains that we are talking about the current president of the European Council, Charles Michel.

The term of office of the current president of the European Council ends in November 2024. However, at the beginning of January, the Belgian portal Sudinfo reportedthat a politician can leave office several months early.
