Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"...to see Tony Blair appointed the first President of the European Council. This appointment, were it to take place, would be in total contradiction with the values professed by the European project."

Article 9B, point 5 says that the president is elected by a qualified majority of the European Council.

Anyone can be nominated. The bottom line is who can muster a qualified majority. Tony Blair can lobby all he wants with members of the European Council. With this in mind, the goal should shift to petitioning European Council members.
