France’s far-right MEP accuses all attacks on Hungary under the guise of mechanics

The French National Union MEP said Wednesday that the European Commission risks being able to use the European Union’s law-conditioning mechanism designed to protect the EU budget as a political tool against Hungary.

Helen Laporte told the Strasbourg MTI that this was due to the lack of a clear definition of what constitutes a violation of the rule of law.

She commented on the position to be approved in the EP plenary session on the status of the rule of law in Hungary and Poland, and stated that the EP identity and democracy group had submitted an alternative resolution in favor of Hungary.

Although the EP’s planned resolution refers to the rule of law, she said, there is no generally accepted legal definition of the term, which paves the way for a vague interpretation.

She said the MEP, which submitted an alternative resolution in favor of Hungary, warned that the EC could use conditional mechanisms as a political weapon without a clear definition of the rule of law.

She said that alternative dispute resolution claims that the legal authorities of various member states have different interpretations of the rule of law and that there is no consensus-based interpretation at the EU level. She also states that the EU has surpassed its authority when it approved the conditionality mechanism.

She said the conditionality mechanism is a controlled political tool, and members of the ID group pretend to be the mechanism and condemn all attacks on Hungary.

She said they believe the EU is unacceptable to withhold funding for Hungary and Poland. Instead, Brock should be better aware of the efforts of these countries to accept refugees fleeing the Ukrainian war, she added.

As I wrote in March, “the most important issue for us has been successfully resolved,” Orban said in Versailles earlier Friday. [European Union] Sanctions on oil and gas. In other words, Hungary’s energy supply will be guaranteed in the coming period. “
