Mitsotakis, Other EU Party Leaders Ask for Expulsion of Orban’s Party from EPP

April 2, 2020

ATHENS – Prime Ministers Kyriakos Mitsotakis of Greece and Erna Solberg of Norway, along with another 11 heads of European center-right parties, called on the president of the European People’s Party (EPP) Donald Tusk to expel the Hungarian party Fidesz from the Europarliament group on Thursday.

In their letter, the 13 express their great concern over a March 30 legislation voted in the Hungarian parliament that allows Prime Minister Victor Orban to extend his stay in power and the government to extend indefinitely the state of emergency.

“The battle against Covid-19 requires extensive measures but the virus cannot be used as an excuse to extend the state of emergency indefinitely,” they said in their letter.

They also expressed their support to the European Commission and asked for EU members to intervene jointly.
