The European Parliament adopted a resolution condemning Hungary and Poland in connection with the EU’s Article 7 procedures on Thursday. The non-binding resolution was adopted with 446 votes in favor, 178 against and with 41 abstentions.
MEPs have asked the European Council to provide the two countries with recommendations, including deadlines, in order to guarantee their observance of EU law.
Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said the adoption of EP resolution is yet another way for pro-migration forces to pressure Hungary, insisting that it had done so in close cooperation with various organizations allied to US financier George Soros.
Speaking in Strasbourg after the European Parliament plenary on the rule of law in Hungary and Poland, Hidvéghi said the rule of law issue had been a “cover story” for what was a political dispute between pro-migration forces and Hungary, which opposes migration.
