Hungarian liberals calls for parliament to confirm support for Rome Declaration
Budapest, May 22 (MTI) – The opposition Hungarian Liberal Party calls for parliament to confirm that Hungary supports the European Union’s Rome Declaration which was signed by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, party leader Gábor Fodor said on Monday.
Fodor said he had submitted to parliament a draft declaration which includes the Hungarian translation of the Rome Declaration and a request to the government to make every effort for implementing it.
The Liberals want to force the government to show its true colours in connection with the European Union, he said. They believe the government speaks differently about Europe in Hungary and abroad, Fodor added.
He called on the government to clearly state whether it is dedicated to the principles of the European Union. If the lawmakers of the ruling party do not support the resolution, it should be made clear “that what they communicate abroad is a lie”, he added.
