Fidesz’s deputy head Katalin Novák has said the party “no longer wishes to maintain its membership in the European People’s Party.”

Novák posted a parting letter on Twitter on Thursday which was signed by Fidesz’s international secretariat and addressed to the Secretary-General of the EPP, Antonio Lopez-Isturiz White.

Novák, who is also Hungary’s minister in charge of family affairs, said: “It’s time to say goodbye”. Fidesz’s MEPs quit the EPP group in the European Parliament on March 3 after the group approved its new procedural rules.
