Budapest (MTI) – European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker sees the people as a danger to democracy, Hungary’s foreign minister said on Saturday.
Péter Szijjártó reacted in a statement to an interview Juncker gave to Austrian daily Kurier in which the EC leader said that legal security in the European Union would be endangered if member states held referendums on ever decision made by the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament. Juncker also reiterated that the EU’s migrant quota scheme was based on the principle of solidarity.
Szijjártó said: “The mandatory migrant quota scheme is based on ‘the principle of stupidity’ and the Hungarian people have a right to voice their opinion on pivotal questions.”
They especially have the right to voice their opinion when “terrorist attacks and murders” committed by “migrants who are unable to integrate” into society have become everyday occurrences in Europe, the minister added.
