Brussels is interfering in the Hungarian election campaign and is using its country report to help the opposition, claims minister

The minister of state for Government Communication said the aim of the Brussels report is to place pressure on Hungary and to achieve the downfall of the government and replace it with a “pro-immigration cabinet that is acceptable to Brussels”

Brussels is interfering in the Hungarian election campaign and is using its country report to help the opposition, claims Bence Tuzson, minister of State for Government Communication.

Tuzson says the aim of the Brussels report is to place pressure on Hungary and to achieve the downfall of the government and replace it with a “pro-immigration cabinet that is acceptable to Brussels”.

He also said that the opposition would demolish the border security fence and implement the quotas which would bring Hungary to its knees. He added that the Brussels document is an “unprecedented interference” in the Hungarian election campaign.

Tuzson also pointed out how unacceptable it was for organizations like Transparency International to take part in the preparation of a report of this nature, adding that Transparency protested against the construction of the border security fence and with relation to the “Stop Soros” legislative package, and is continuously attacking Hungarian immigration policy.

“The European Commission has once again joined the Hungarian election campaign and is using a double standard: with relation to law enforcement, for instance, the report feels the Law Enforcement Council has a limited sphere of authority with relation to appointing judges. In contrast, no body of this kind even exists in Austria and Germany and there are no such guarantees,” the minister of state said, noting that otherwise law enforcement fundamentally falls within a national sphere of competence.
