MEPs back action against Hungary for undermining European Union values

MEPs back action against Hungary for undermining European Union values

Since sweeping to power in 2010, Orban, once a campaigner against Hungary's Soviet Communist overlords, has used his parliamentary majority to pressure courts, media and non-government groups in ways his opponents say breach European Union rules. "However, it is not right that we should be stripped of our right to protect the borders and Brussels wants to take responsibility for this instead", he added. "Our borders are protected not only by professionals but by patriots".

"During the election campaign we discussed all of the issues -- including the CEU, the NGOs. and the people decided on these issues", Orban said Tuesday after the debate in Strasbourg. "If we wanted to mix with other cultures and civilizations, then we will consult about it and we will decide about it".

Responding to Orban's speech, opposition lawmakers criticized his position on EU's plans to expand border security and accused Orban of trying to hide behind the Hungarian people for his failure in the European Parliament after Orban said that the vote was against Hungary, not against his government's disputed policies.

The European Parliament on Wednesday launched an action that could unleash unprecedented political sanctions against Viktor Orban's populist Hungarian government for posing a "systemic threat" to the EU's founding values.

He also claimed that the vote involved "massive fraud" since abstentions were not counted into the final tally, which made it easier to reach the needed majority.

Several of the demoralised opposition parties, derided by some for opting to take up their seats in the new parliament, have organised a pro-EU demonstration Sunday to celebrate the vote and urge citizens to stand up to Orban.

Around 1,000 Hungarians protested against Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Sunday at a pro-EU rally organised by leftist opposition parties, demanding that the government respect democratic rights and other European Union values.

"In this question, you should support Europe's defense of its shared borders", Jobbik faction leader Marton Gyongyosi said.

But the EU Council - the heads of government of the member states - will now begin a process which could lead to potential recommendations being made against Hungary.

"They were unable to keep the United Kingdom within Europe, and they were unable to keep the migrants out, outside of Europe", Orban said.
