Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council and a former Polish prime minister, said Tuesday that he won’t run in next year’s Polish presidential election.

“I feel that we can win those elections, but for that a candidate is needed who is not weighed down by the baggage of difficult, unpopular decisions, and I’m weighed down with such baggage from when I was prime minister,” Tusk told Polish reporters in Brussels.
