Fidesz MEPs reject PM’s invitation for consultation
Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány invited on Wednesday Hungary's members of the European Parliament for a meeting to discuss cooperation between MEPs and the government, as well as to consult on the country's position regarding European Union expansion, government spokeswoman Emese Danks said.
Main opposition party Fidesz issued a statement on Wednesday saying the party's MEPs would not attend the meeting. Gyurcsány proposed for discussion ways to further develop co-operation between the government and MEPs, cooperation in 2007 in the light of the EP's annual schedule and Hungary's position on the EU expansion policy with special regard to the countries of the western Balkans.
