Fidesz MEP slams EP’s ‘legally incomprehensible’ lawsuit against EC

It is "legally incomprehensible" that the European Parliament is suing the European Commission ultimately because the body's leftist groups disagree with the EC's decision to unfreeze funding for Hungary, an MEP of ruling Fidesz said on Tuesday.

The EP is enveloped in “panic” as its mandate nears its end, Balazs Hidveghi said in a video message, adding that the EP’s “Soros-affiliated majority” and “the Hungarian dollar left” were “desperately continuing to attack Hungary”.

Hidveghi said it was “tragicomic” that the one EU institution, the EP, was turning to another, the European Court of Justice, to sue the European Commission in order to “punish” a member state that “refuses to dance to their tune”.

“There’s less than 100 days left until the EP elections,” he said, calling for change in Brussels.

“If we do not want the European Parliament to become a caricature of democracy, we must elect MEPs who work for normal European people, rather than for obsessive, extreme left-wing ideologies,” Hidveghi said.
