“Orban was the only one to do the right thing”

The debate about Judith Sargentini’s report on the situation in Hungary was scary because everyone was bashing Viktor Orban, when he was the only head of government who did the right thing during the migration crisis, FPÖ MEP Georg Mayer told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap.

According to Mayer, EPP group leader Manfred Weber voted yes because he wants to become the president of the European Commission and for that, he needs the support of the left-wing and liberal parties too. The MEP said that “the wing is changing”, eurosceptic and anti-migration forces can form a much more powerful group in the EP than before, so Weber is probably betting on the wrong force.

Czech EPP MEP Tomas Zdechovsky told Magyar Hirlap that Sargentini’s report is the result of a non-neutral investigation, which was aimed against Hungary since the beginning. He stressed that this criticism will only make Viktor Orban stronger, and his opposition weaker.
