Socialist MEP: Marki-Zay would review government plans on EU resiliency funding
Marki-Zay’s letter said he would protect EU resources from corruption if the opposition came to power after Sunday’s ballot, according to a statement on Wednesday by Socialist MEP Istvan Ujhelyi.
“EU resources should be spent on reforms and social issues serving Hungary’s development rather than on the enrichment of the oligarchs linked to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán,” Marki-Zay wrote.
RRF funding and resources from the EU’s 2021-2027 budget “are a unique opportunity to build a greener, socially fairer and digitally more prepared future for Hungary,” he added.
A government run by the current opposition would immediately move to join the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) and demonstrate the new administration’s commitment to “taking steps against government-level corruption…”
Marki-Zay pledged to preserve fundamental European values such as the rule of law, press freedom, and judicial independence.
