Gergely Gulyás, Head of the Prime Minister's Office, said that if Hungarian legislation adopted over the past few months is examined objectively and on a professional basis, “then we can get Hungary’s suspended EU money released in the next few months.”
In an interview with German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Gulyás noted that in August, after the government was formed, a strategic agreement was signed with the European Union with a view to concluding the conditionality procedure. “At the same time, we saw that there was a lot of pressure from the European Parliament on the Commission,” he added. Hungary has already fulfilled the majority of the 27 “milestones” that the EC had set as conditions, he said. An Integrity Authority has been set up and already started operations, he added.
