Hungarian Ruling Party Spokesman Responds To Criticism From EPP
“Representing the opinion of the Hungarian people in Brussels is more important than party discipline,” János Halász, spokesman for the parliamentary group of ruling Fidesz, said in response to recent criticism from the European People’s Party, in Budapest.

“This is a big family of parties; each party has its position and Fidesz has its own.

We think that it is important to preserve European Christian values, and to maintain security and provide protection to our communities,” he insisted, and argued that “this is the position Hungarian voters authorised us to put forward”.
