David Sassoli, President of the European Parliament, is in a hospital in Italy. Roberto Collio, a spokesman for the President of the European Parliament, said that all official meetings with his participation have been cancelled. The reason for hospitalization was “serious complications due to a malfunction of the immune system”.
The President of the European Parliament is in hospital on December 26. His spokesman reported his hospitalization on Monday.
Corriere della Sera recalls that in September last year, Sassoli was hospitalized with pneumonia not caused by COVID-19.
There will be a change of attitude
Sassoli, 65, was elected President of the European Parliament in 2019. In December, he announced that he would not run for re-election. He made it clear that he did not want to divide the “pro-European majority”.
After the recent elections to the European Parliament, the European People’s Party, Socialists and Democrats and Renew Europe groups concluded an agreement on 3 July 2019 under which they pledged to elect the Social Democrats’ candidate for the presidency of the European Parliament in the first half of the European Parliament. And the candidate from the EPP group – the second half.
