Fidesz MEP: European left exploiting EU enlargement ‘for cheap political games’

"Attacks" against EU commissioner for neighborhood policy and enlargement Oliver Varhelyi "are a political tool of the European left" to exploit strategically important EU enlargement policy as part of their "cheap political games", the head of the Fidesz group in the European Parliament said on Tuesday evening.

In a statement, Kinga Gal called it “absurd” that the EP’s Committee on Foreign Affairs had proposed an investigation against Varhelyi in its annual report on the implementation of the EU’s common foreign and security policy.

“In his statements, Oliver Varhelyi has always represented the European Union’s position, consistently applying democracy and the rule-of-law conditions in line with the revised methodology,” Gal said, highlighting the commissioner’s “indisputable” professional achievements and his key role in “giving new impetus” to the integration of the Western Balkans.

She insisted the report had levelled “unacceptable politically motivated” criticism against Hungary, insisting that this was “part of a witch-hunt that has been going on for years because we support peace and object to proposals that support illegal migration and eliminating the sovereignty of EU member states.”
