Hungary concerned about EPP Party too, urges the EPP to halt shift to the Left.

– There is a need for a conservative turnaround in the European People’s Party (EPP) as its further shift towards the Left would cost much in a European parliamentary election, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office told a conference in Munich organised by Bavaria’s Christian Social Union’s (CSU) parliamentary group on Friday.

The V4 Report has always been leery of the EPP, especially after its leader claimed the EPP could work with liberals, Greens and Socialists…but not with Salvini’s group on the right.

We are especially concerned about the anti-PiS (Poland) faction of German “conservatives” and Donald Tusk’s opposition party…plus the negative influence of liberal members from Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Luxembourg and others.

Even Sebastian Kurz will probably choose to partner with the leftist Greens as opposed to the FPO.

– The issue of a conservative turnaround is also a matter of important debates within the German union parties, namely the CSU and the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Gergely Gulyas told MTI by phone.

“We would like to see the CSU return to a stance that represents a strongly conservative policy within the union parties,” he said.

As regards [ruling Fidesz’s] relations with the CSU, Gulyas said there were statements over the past six months by the Bavarian party that “did not point in the direction of deepening relations.”
