Fidesz MP: European liberal left ‘contradicting itself again’

It did not take long in the new year for the European liberal left "to contradict itself again", Judit Varga, the (Fidesz) head of parliament's European affairs committee, said on Tuesday.

Varga cited recent reports of “the Brussels elite” planning to initiate another Article 7 procedure against Hungary that would set the basis for suspending the country’s voting rights.

She said in a Facebook post that this came after Hungary had built the European Union’s best-rated justice system, which she said was proven by the fact that the European Commission had begun to unfreeze the cohesion funds the country is entitled to.

Varga added it was clear that when it came to “Hungarophobia, the liberal left did not even believe its own institutions”.
