EU news: Orban vows to quit Juncker’s EPP unless Hungarian PM handed big role | World | News

The Hungarian Prime Minister has warned his Fidesz party could join another European Parliament bloc if the centre-right grouping does not line up with national interests. Mr Orban’s Fidesz were suspended from the EPP, the Parliament’s largest group, in March after complaints over the rule of law, media freedom and rights of minorities in Hungary. And the rift looks set to continue, with the Hungarian leader yet to commit to rejoining the bloc going forward.

He said: “We are members of the EPP right now and we will see which direction the EPP goes. Whether we can influence it and whether it is in line with the interests of Hungary and the Hungarian people.

“If yes, then we will stay, if not, we will sit in a new formation.”
