The president of the European Parliament David Sassoli has died, his office announced early on Tuesday morning.

He passed away after a "serious complication" related to his immune system.

"The president of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, passed away at 1.15 a.m. on January 11 at the hospital in Aviano, Italy," his spokesman, Roberto Cuillo said on Twitter. 

 

"The date and place of the funeral will be communicated in the next few hours," he added.

On Monday, the EU parliament confirmed he had been admitted to hospital in Italy on December 26.

In September 2021, during a plenary session of the parliament, the 65-year-old came down with a bad case of pneumonia.

He was married with two children.

EP (European Parliament) President, not EU President... He's basically the EU's Nancy Pelosi, not our Joe Biden.

 

But RIP.

Such a great loss for Europe and for Italy. I always envisioned he would have been an incredible President later on. Tragic how fast his illness went, I hope his legacy will be preserved.

 

Disgusting how some (far)right vultures are crying his death when they were dragging him ever since he got elected as EP president

We really lost a good one. After the year we've had, it's awful that we lost somebody on our side.
