"I understand that Tusk it's OK": Has the Cypriot President just spoiled it all?

As we wrote in our round-up of EU leaders' doorsteps, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk is the favourite for the European Council President post but it was not yet a done deal. However, have we just inadvertently had confirmation that Tusk has landed the job?

Watch this video from around 16:30 in:

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades tells outgoing European Council President Herman Van Rompuy:
"We have news, I understand that Donald [Tusk] it's okay."
And Van Rompuy replies:
"Yes, but keep it."
That sounds like a bit of a spoiler, but we will keep following the summit and provide you with real-time updates on Twitter just in case there are any last minute surprises.

how democratic!! how can the eu stand for stransparancy and democratic elections as the eu leaders are not elected by eu citizens but by eu elitists its no wonder that anti european parties are on the rise with sickening un democratic scams like these with secret meetings behind closed doors apointing minister posts and presidents posts by how much influence someone has instead of popularity
