Hidvéghi told public radio on Sunday that it was “detrimental” to European cooperation that “the EP refuses to accept that Hungary’s position is different from theirs on the hottest issues such as the war or aid to Ukraine, or moral topics like LGBT propaganda and child protection.” He suggested that differing views should be tolerated, adding that threatening Hungary with stripping the country of its voting rights in the EU “beats everything”. He added, however, that procedures to deny Hungary its voting rights could be initiated by one third of the EC or of member states, while the European Council should pass a unanimous decision. “There is no realistic chance for that,” he said. Hidvéghi slammed the EP for its “debates characterised by defamation, unfounded, extremist remarks and complete rejection of different positions”, saying those phenomena “clearly show the workings of the Soros network”. “This network has infiltrated European institutions … through various organisations and activists and is increasingly aggressive against differing opinions…” he said.
