‘It is time to rein in Viktor Orbán’s rogue presidency’: Renew Europe calls for action to stop Hungary

The head of the liberal Renew Europe group has called on the European Council to explore all means to stop Hungary’s ongoing presidency of the Council of the EU.

Hungary took over the rotating presidency on 1 July for a period of six months, but has the country’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán, has already fuelled controversy with a trip to visit Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Valérie Hayer, the president of Renew Europe and an ally of the French president, Emmanuel Macron, said today that “the Hungarian prime minister is undermining positions adopted by the European Union and acting contrary to our interests and it has to stop.”

“It is time to rein in Viktor Orbán’s rogue presidency of the Council.,” she said, adding:

His pretend peace mission is a security threat, his isolated communication is only a smoke screen for his own interests and fails miserably. Russia’s recent attacks, including on a children’s hospital in Kyiv, 48h after a supposed peace mission, are simply sickening.
