Not surprising and happy result for astrology: Van Rompuy is the 'President'(in fact chairman) of the European Union with transit Jupiter - the planet of successes - conjunct progressed Midheaven. Dutch MP Balkenende (who was named even though he kept saying that he was not a candidate and nobody asked him to be one) had transit Saturn inconjunct Midheaven. So now we now for sure that it is better to have Jupiter on your side than Saturn on a slide.
