Fidesz says international media misrepresenting constitutional amendments

Analysis

Hungary’s planned constitutional amendments have been misinterpreted by the international press but the ruling Fidesz party and the government are ready to help to clarify the situation, Fidesz communication director Mate Kocsis said on Wednesday. Kocsis cited an online article by the Financial Times which argued that if Hungarian parliament approves a new package of amendment proposals, then Hungary should lose its voting rights in the European Union and all EU support should be suspended. Kocsis said Hungary would “resolutely and honourably defend itself on this issue, once again.” The “hair-raising views” published by the international press distort the real situation in Hungary, he said. The planned constitutional amendment “is intended to be a good amendment to the constitution” and is in keeping with the Constitutional Court’s past rulings in every paragraph.
