Parliament adopts resolution rejecting EP decision on migration
Parliament adopted on Tuesday a resolution proposed by ruling Fidesz rejecting the European Parliament’s November 16 decision on mandatory quotas on the resettlement of asylum seekers.
The resolution was adopted with 142 votes in favour and 3 against. The Socialists, the leftist Democratic Coalition and green LMP did not vote.
Fidesz deputy head Szilárd Németh told a press conference after the vote that it had made it clear that “the entire left wing has lined up behind the Soros plan”.
Jobbik “denies the existence of the Soros plan one day and admits it the next”, Németh said, “which is what happened in the vote”.
The vote showed clearly who supports the “Soros plan” and who defends Hungary’s interests and the country’s sovereignty, Németh insisted.
The patrotic people’s Jobbik party said that it supported “95 percent of the resolution” but also added that it saw “no written proof that the European Parliament is implementing that plan”. Speaking at a press conference, Jobbik deputy group leader Gábor Staudt argued that “from person A agreeing with person B does not follow that one should be acting on instructions by the other.”
Staudt also said that “while the ruling parties tried to make (the public) believe that the whole of the opposition was committedly pro-migration,” Jobbik supported the resolution in parliament.
