Pundit proposes “impeachment” of PM Orbán

February 15th, 2020

A left-liberal analyst suggests that the opposition should stage a symbolic public trial to prove its claim that the Prime Minister has been ruining Hungarian democracy.

On HVG online, György Marosán, a physicist and philosopher who teaches entrepreneurship at Budapest’s University of Economics calls on the opposition to unite in a symbolic “impeachment” procedure against the incumbent Prime Minister. Marosán thinks that Hungary ceased to be a democracy around 2015 and the Prime Minister should be indicted in public by his opponents as the man who “killed it”. He is convinced that in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s impeachment, such an initiative, although legally irrelevant, would attract considerable international media attention and make an impact on the international community, including the European Union and the European People’s Party which seems reluctant to expel Fidesz from its ranks. After the first such “trial”, the initiative could be converted into a roadshow with stopovers in several towns in Hungary and beyond, Marosán suggests.
