DK accuses Fidesz of wanting ‘to strip Hungarians of funding’

The Hungarian government wants to make sure that Hungarian citizens and entrepreneurs do not receive funding if the European Union blocks Hungary's funds, an MEP of the Democratic Coalition (DK) said on Friday, referring to an amendment proposal submitted by Fidesz MEP Balazs Hidveghi to a European parliamentary resolution which sought to prevent local authorities from disbursing EU resources.

“Three-quarters of MEPs voted down the proposal which was a betrayal of Hungarians,” Sandor Ronai told an online press conference after Thursday’s EP voted against adopting Hungary’s recovery fund plan. He noted the resolution declared that “the government has not eliminated stealing and corruption in Hungary.”
