The political assembly of the European People’s Party (EPP) reached a good compromise concerning Fidesz on Wednesday, Milan Zver, MEP of the Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap.
“We have been opposing any weakening of the EPP, especially before the crucial European elections,” Zver reminded, adding that “in the given circumstances” the compromise – Fidesz suspends its membership until the report of the “three wise men’s” evaluation committee is ready – is good, and the party family managed to keep its unity.
According to Zver, nothing will and should happen before the elections in May, because the committee’s work will take more time and the EPP should go to the elections as a united front anyway.
Regarding ideological differences within the EPP, Zver said that as Europe’s largest party family, the EPP should find a way to co-exist with its differences. “But I have to underline that we, the conservative part of the party, won’t make compromises regarding migration,” he stressed.
