SZÁZADVÉG: MAJORITY OF HUNGARIANS SAY EU SHOULD SEEK COOPERATION, COMPROMISE

 

Six out of every ten Hungarians say that Brussels should seek cooperation and compromise with Hungary over its funding, and it has no right to withhold the payment of European Union resources allocated for member states, the Századvég Foundation said. The think-tank’s latest survey involved interviewing 1,000 people in early January to gauge public opinion about the payment of cohesion and recovery funds “rightfully due” to Hungary, the statement said. The survey showed that 60% of Hungarians believe the EU is an alliance of free and equal countries, and “Brussels has no right to withhold financial resources, even partially, but should seek compromise”.
