The European Union needs leaders who respect the will of the bloc’s member states and understand the concerns of its citizens, the state secretary for EU affairs of the Prime Minister’s Office said. At stake in the European parliamentary elections is whether the “pro-migration elite’s monopoly on power” can be broken, Szabolcs Takács said after a meeting of EU affairs officials in Brussels.
Hungary is in favour of breaking away from “the policies of Brussels which are too far removed from the will of the European people”, he said. Takács said every member state should be allowed to decide for itself whether it wants to “base its future on immigration or a successful family policy”. Concerning the next EU budget, he said the accomplishments of the Schengen system should be restored.
