MEP: Fidesz will decide for itself which European party group it wishes to join

PM Orbán announced on March 20 last year that Fidesz would “unilaterally suspend" its EPP membership until ad hoc committees of both Fidesz and the EPP complete their reports on the matter.

MEP Tamás Deutsch has said Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party, whose EPP membership has been suspended, will decide for itself which European party group it wishes to belong to in future.

“A decision will not be taken about Fidesz, rather the decision will be taken by the party itself,” Deutsch said in an interview with Magyar Nemzet on Saturday.

According to MTI, Deutsch said his party had not been officially notified about completion of an EPP report concerning its membership, but added that Fidesz would welcome the document.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced on March 20 last year that Fidesz would “unilaterally suspend" its EPP membership until ad hoc committees of both Fidesz and the EPP complete their reports on the matter.
