A prominent American political journalism organization, has named former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk as "The Most Influential Person in Europe."

This accolade is a part of Politico's comprehensive ranking, which categorizes influential figures into three groups: "Doers," "Destroyers," and "Dreamers," each featuring nine nominees.

Donald Tusk's recognition comes after his significant impact on Polish politics and his broader influence in European affairs.

Tusk, who also served as the President of the European Council, has been a central figure in the political landscape of Poland.

His career has been marked by a long-standing rivalry with Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the Law and Justice (PiS) party. This competition has been described as a battle for the soul of Poland.

Under Kaczyński's leadership, Poland has witnessed substantial political shifts. However, with Tusk's return to the political arena, there is an anticipation of a new era in Polish politics.

The scenario is seen as a turning point where the "winds of change" are expected to bring a different trajectory for the country.

The complete list of 27 individuals nominated across the three categories by Politico underscores the diverse and dynamic nature of political influence in Europe.

The list, accessible through a provided link, showcases a broad spectrum of personalities who are shaping the current and future political landscape of Europe.
