MEPs Adopt Resolution on Concerns Over Hungary

EU

Members of the European Parliament adopted a resolution on Thursday raising concerns over developments in Hungary as the country prepares to take the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2024, according to news agency MTI.

In the resolution, approved with a vote of 442 for, 144 against, and 33 abstentions, the EP "condemns the deliberate and systematic efforts of the Hungarian Government to undermine the founding values of the EU". 

The MEPs voiced concerns regarding the passage of legislation "without sufficient parliamentary scrutiny and public consultation", the "abusive invocation" of a state of emergency, and the "infringement of teachers' social and labor rights", the EP said.

The MEPs pointed in the resolution to the role of the presidency of the Council in "ensuring the continuity of the EU agenda" and representing the Council in relations with the other EU institutions, and questioned, "how Hungary will be able to credibly fulfill this task in 2024, in view of its non-compliance with EU law and the values enshrined in [the Treaties], as well as the principle of sincere cooperation".
