Hungary to face possibility of European sanctions – European Parliament to vote tomorrow
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has defended his country’s record in the European Parliament, with Hungary facing the possibility of European sanctions because of the contravention of human rights of minorities and the rule of law in his country, as well as the undermining of the Judiciary and institutions.
Replying to charges by Euro MPs about how he is shackling democracy in his country, Prime Minister Orban stated that Hungary would not give in to pressure from the EU. Orban reiterated that Hungary will remain against accepting immigrants, saying the Hungarian Government had a mandate from the people. The Prime Minister added that he would follow the decision of the Hungarian people, who do not want Hungary to be a country of immigrants.
Prime Minister Orban warned that if tomorrow’s vote goes against his country, it will be condemnation of the Hungarian people.
