The MEP criticised the committee for launching a debate on Poland’s judiciary, inviting the European Commission to participate while not inviting Poland. Hidveghi said the procedure “runs against fundamental rules of debate”.

The EC “doesn’t care about a balanced debate; it has never cared,” Hidveghi said, adding that “the left wing here only listens to their own narrative…”

“It is outrageous that leftist politicians gather weekly and unanimously condemn Poland without hearing the Polish government’s position,” he said on Facebook.

Hidveghi also suggested that the timing of the debate was in connection with Poland’s upcoming elections. “The commission will again take its share in manipulating public sentiment,” he said.
