Weber comes to Budapest

The European People’s Spitzenkandidat, Manfred Weber told Welt am Sonntag that he aims to talk to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban soon “to warn him he is on course to be excluded from the grouping”.

Recently, the Bavarian politician demanded Hungary’s government take down the posters attacking Jean-Claude Juncker.

“In the coming days, I will again try to talk personally to Viktor Orban in Budapest, because I want to try to make clear to him that at the moment he is on the way out of the EPP,” Weber told the German daily.

Weber told Welt am Sonntag the dispute was not “about an East-West conflict (in the EU), or about migration policy, as is claimed, but rather about which values the EPP and the EU represent.”
