European Commission says it will examine Hungary’s new legislative package to determine whether it falls in line with EU law

The European Commission has announced that it will examine Hungary’s new legislative package to determine whether it falls in line with EU law.

An EU commission spokesman said on Thursday that it will also take the Venice Commission’s opinion into consideration when evaluating the new law.

On Wednesday, lawmakers passed a government-sponsored constitutional amendment aiming to “preserve Hungary’s Christian culture,” set up an administrative high court and impose punitive measures on supporting illegal migration.

Christian Wigand said that pending the assessment’s conclusions, the Commission will take any steps necessary, adding that the Commission will take into account the impact of the law on European values as well as how those values are protected.
