European Union lawmakers have voted overwhelmingly in favor of launching motion towards the Hungarian authorities of Prime Minister Viktor Orban for allegedly undermining the bloc’s democratic values and rule of regulation.
The lawmakers on Wednesday voted 448-197 in favor of a report recommending the launch of a so-called Article 7 process, which may result in the suspension of Hungary’s EU voting rights.

The transfer noticed some members of the European Folks’s Celebration bloc — of which Orban’s Fidesz motion is a member — vote towards their ally in Budapest.
Orban has for years deflected a lot of the worldwide condemnation of Hungary’s electoral system, media freedoms, independence of the judiciary, mistreatment of asylum-seekers and refugees and limits on the functioning of non-governmental organizations.
