"I have no doubt that the Hungarian Presidency will rise to these challenges."
The Chairman of the most influential European parliamentary Group recalled that the Hungarian Prime Minister's Party, Fidesz, was created and is based on a core value: that of freedom. He welcomed the new Hungarian Government's willingness to reform following years of bad governance.
"Today, one of these reforms, that which concerns the media, is subject to legal assessment by the European Commission. For my part, I trust the European Commission in its role as Guardian of the Treaties, and I have confidence in the Hungarian Prime Minister who has pledged to change the law if the Commission deems certain provisions in that law contrary to Community legislation. I refuse any trial of intent", continued Joseph Daul.
The Chairman of the EPP Group also called on the Hungarian Presidency to provide all necessary assistance to Tunisia, which is going through a tense but vital period and must be supported on its way towards change.
