Juncker: Orban has no place in EWP

Юнкер: Орбану нет места в ЕВП

The Prime Minister of Hungary there is no place in the ranks of the European people’s party. This was stated on Friday in an interview with French newspaper Le Monde, the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.

He recalled that last week the European Parliament voted in favor of the application of the 7th article of the basic Treaty of the EU, which could lead to sanctions against Budapest.

“I expressed my point of view at the summit of our political party in Salzburg on 20 September, – said Juncker. – Despite the fact that I respect this man, I see a lot of inconsistencies between his words and the Christian-democratic values that underpin the European people’s party”.

The head of the European Commission did not exclude the possibility to reconsider its position, if Orban agrees to respect the program and the basic values of European center-right.
