The report on the rule of law in Hungary will soon be debated in the European Parliament, and will be voted on Thursday. However, neither Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán, nor any member of the government will take part in the debate. But why?
Not a single member of the Hungarian government, including Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, will take part in the debate on the report on the rule of law in Hungary in the European Parliament. Magyar Hang wrote that Orbán will not be travelling to Strasbourg, based on information from the EP’s Media Service. They added that not only will Orbán not be there, but no member of the government will be present.

“Because no invitation was received.”
