EPP Spitzenkandidat Manfred Weber told ZDF on Friday that if he could only win the presidency of the European Commission with votes from Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party, then he wouldn’t take the job. He added that he does not want to win by right-wing votes, he wants to shape the future of Europe from the middle.
“This statement is unacceptable. With this Manfred Weber insulted Hungarian voters, who, like other European citizens, will send members to the European Parliament in democratic election. It proved once again that Weber became the hostage of the pro-immigration left,”
Hungarian State Secretary for EU Relations Judit Varga reacted on Facebook.
“As you like, Manfred, as you like😂”
Fidesz MEP Tamas Deutsch wrote.
