Varga: Hungarians can help set EU course in 2024

Next year's European Parliament elections will give Hungarians and Europeans the chance to tell Brussels what direction they want the continent to go in, the head of parliament's European affairs committee said on Sunday.

“We cannot be idle; change is needed,” Judit Varga said in a video message.

“We can confidently say that the year we’re leaving behind wasn’t an easy one,” Varga said, noting the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, the “sanctions-fuelled inflation”.

“It has also become clear that the bureaucrats in Brussels are incapable of handling global challenges in the era of dangers,” Varga said. “The flawed sanctions and war policy has caused the European Union to tilt towards a recession.”

Meanwhile, Varga said that despite the “pro-terror demonstrations” in western European cities, Brussels continued to push for the approval of its migration package, which she said would be tantamount to an invitation to illegal immigrants.

She said that in 2024 the ruling alliance of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats would work to put Hungary “back on the path of development” and preserve the country’s sovereignty.
