Hungary’s Justice Minister: EU Trying 'To Show Member States How To Make Democracy'
Hungary’s justice minister has slammed what she called “Brussels institutions with grave democratic deficits” for wanting “to show Member States how to make democracy”.

Judit Varga said the European Action Plan for Democracy (EDAP) and the Media and Audiovisual Action Plan (MAAP) mirror Deputy Commission President Věra Jourová’s view that “in healthy democracies, the center of Brussels says what a fair election, a clean campaign and a balanced press market look like”.

“Which Commissioner will think first that the election results should also be sent from Brussels?” Varga said.
