Coronavirus Update: MEP calls for an end to “irresponsible shouts of protest from the outside”

Hungarian MEP József Szájer has called for an end to “irresponsible shouts of protest from the outside”.

Hungarian MEP József Szájer has called for an end to “irresponsible shouts of protest from the outside” in reaction to Czech MEP Radka Maxova’s complaint sent to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen concerning Hungary’s bill to extend the current state of emergency.

According to reports, Maxova asked Von der Leyen to take action because of the perceived unconstitutionality of Hungary’s bill. Szájer said that Maxova’s claim, according to which the bill would put the constitutional order of state under threat, was “nonsense”.

Szájer said several European countries were using extraordinary powers, each in line with their unique constitutional traditions.
