Kovacs hits back at Tusk over criticism of Hungary freedoms
Tusk had said earlier that Hungary and Poland were “breaking tragic records” in new coronavirus cases and deaths. “Illiberal democracies in action. They have promised less freedom but more safety and security. And they have kept their promise, but only its first half,” he said.
Kovacs said in reaction that instead of holding EU institutions accountable for “bungling vaccine procurement” Tusk was “leading the party of Kohl, W. Martens into the wilderness, sounding like the leader of the Liberals”.
Had Hungary waited for the EU, it would not be leading the bloc in vaccination rate, Kovacs added.
