Juncker: Viktor Orban ‘no longer has a place in EPP’

Juncker: Viktor Orban ‘no longer has a place in EPP’

Brussels, 12 October 2018 (MIA) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Hungary’s Viktor Orban “no longer has a place” in the European People’s Party, according to an interview published Friday.

“Although I respect the man, I see many incompatibilities between his words and the Christian democratic values on which the EPP family is based,” Juncker told Le Monde, adding “unless he will guarantee us that he respects the fundamental values and the electoral program of the EPP.”

The European Parliament passed a motion last month declaring that Hungary is at risk of breaching the EU’s core values. It decided to initiate a so-called Article 7 process against Budapest, citing concerns about judicial independence, corruption, freedom of expression, academic freedom, the rights of minorities and migrants, and other issues. lk/18:06
