Video Opinion: Hungarian MEP Says Fidesz Wants To Be In EPP
In the run-up to the European elections, Euronews 'Good Morning Europe' show host Belle Donati speaks with MEP, Lívia Járóka from Hungary's ruling Fidesz Party.

Do you think Fidesz wants to be in the EPP?

"Yes. I know that they want to be there."

So, why is it running campaign posters against Juncker with George Soros in the picture saying that Hungarians don't know what's going on in Brussels? And why has Viktor Orban just withdrawn his support from the EPP's lead candidate Manfred Weber?

"Because this is what he thinks, he has been looking at the situation for many months, he has talked with the EU and the EPP on Hungarian rights and wrongs.

So, I think he has a clear opinion about the position of Fidesz in EPP and many of his colleagues inside of Fidesz are so strongly supporting him on being critical, but of course not stopping the ties, because we always belong together, our values are the same."
