Hungary, Poland and Italy will reorganise EU right wing: Viktor Orban saysEuropost
Hungary, Poland and Italy will try to reorganise the European right after Fidesz, the ruling party in Hungary, left the European People's Party (EPP), Hungarian PM Viktor Orban announced on Friday on the state Radio Kossuth, Polish press agency (PAP) reported.
“We are in contact with the Polish Prime Minister (Mateusz Morawiecki) and the Minister of the Italian government (Matteo) Salvini, who is responsible for economic issues. These three countries - Poland, Italy and Hungary - will try to reorganise the European right. We will see each other soon and plan the future together, ”Orban said. His party Fidesz left the EPP on Thursday. The deputy head of Fidesz, Katalin Novak, justified this step with different views on migration, the adoption of new regulations by the EPP group in the European Parliament and the change of the party's direction to the left.
When asked to evaluate the cooperation with the EPP, Orban said that "it was good and beautiful, but it was enough." He emphasised that while there is a coronavirus pandemic, the EPP fraction, instead of helping governments to fight it, is changing the regulations. "It's unworthy, absurd and pointless," he assessed.
