Budapest (MTI) – Hungary’s opposition Socialists will present a package of broad reforms for the European Union in Brussels in the coming days, deputy party leader and MEP István Ujhelyi said on Sunday.
The proposals, dubbed “European ReUnion”, deem necessary “the restructuring of the institutional system at the decision-making level, better integrated operation, increased popular representation, a plan to invest in human capital and sanctions against renitent members states”, Ujhelyi said.
“We European Socialists don’t want a European Union like the one now. In its present state, the EU can answer to neither pressing internal nor external challenges.
