To be continued…but we suggest a clean break from this pathetic EPP group.
We are not sure what this entails, but why not dump Weber, Tusk, Metsola & the EPP to join the PiS of Poland, Meloni, VOX, and other national conservatives in the ECR Group.
From there, they could build a real center-right party willing to work with Salvini and others on the right, instead of teaming with the Socialists, EU federalists, and Greens, which is how Germany’s current EPP operates.
Orban has the strength and character to unite the right, which is why the EPP refuses to let go as well. They don’t like him, but fully realize what he can accomplish outside the group.
In order to move forward, this drama must come to an end. The EPP is no longer what it used to be; they are Merkel’s tools.
👉 Orban: “Our membership in the EPP has been consensually suspended and this defines the actual relationship between our parties. However, the ways this would alter our cooperation in the European Parliament at the Group level was never thoroughly discussed,” Orban writes in a letter obtained by Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet.
“To resolve this discrepancy I would like to put forward a proposal that would allow us to avoid future conflicts of views, interests, and communication problems. (…) I propose to set up a new form of cooperation, similar to the former EPP-ED model. It would allow for Fidesz MEPs to remain in the Group but in a looser form of cooperation,” he explains.
