EP ELECTIONS - JOBBIK FOR STRENGTHENING EU SOCIAL PILLAR

 

An MEP of opposition Jobbik said it was important to strengthen the EU’s social pillar which would include introducing a wage union, increasing support for SMEs and eradicating corruption. Speaking at a press conference, Zoltán Balczó voiced hope that those goals could be achieved and said that the European Parliament passed a decree on setting up a European Labour Authority and adopted guidelines on standard working conditions at its last session before the EP elections. He said Hungary should join the EU’s planned European Public Prosecutor’s Office to prevent “the disappearance of EU monies through channels of corruption”.
