‘European Commissioner Navracsics has to know that his colleagues are in Soros’s pocket’, says Hungarian deputy PM
Hungary’s deputy prime minister gave an interview to public radio on Sunday and dismissed comments by Hungarian European Commissioner Tibor Navracsics, who recently insisted that the so-called Soros plan did not figure in the commission’s draft migration policy.
“Navracsics should know better than anyone that his colleagues and their circle, people and organisations are not only in the hands of [US financier] George Soros, but also in his pocket,”
Zsolt Semjén told Kossuth Radio, referring to the EU commissioner for education, culture, youth and sport.
Navracsics in Budapest on Friday said the European Commission was working out a migration policy along its own lines rather than those of Soros’s.
Semjén, who is also the leader of the Christian Democrats, said Navracsics should weigh up his loyalty to his homeland as against his loyalty “to an international organisation”. He added that he hoped Navracsics’s statement could be attributed to “a journalist’s misrepresentation” of what he said.
the German leadership had been anti-democratic for failing to consult its citizens about whether or not they wanted to live side by side with masses of Muslims.
Referring to the upcoming “national consultation” on the so-called Soros plan, he added that Hungary was doing the right thing by consulting its citizens over the issue of migration.
