European Parliament debates over Hungary and Poland

January 16th, 2020

A pro-government columnist believes Hungary’s critics in the EP condemn anyone who opposes their project of a single federal European state.

In Magyar Hírlap, Mariann Őry finds the accusations against Hungary and Poland within the European Parliament groundless. The EP invited the European Commission to report on the rule of law procedures against the two countries, which a majority of MEPs consider too protracted. Őry thinks such MEPs are motivated both by personal and political ambitions. As for the former, ‘Orbán-bashing’ is for them a ritual which allows them to become part of the ‘enlightened élite’. As for the latter, they earnestly promote the idea of a United States of Europe where individual countries will cease to exist and will become just regions of a federal state controlled from the centre. This is why they loathe anyone who stands up for national sovereignty and traditional values, she writes.
