Hungary is not a full-fledged democracy

ungarn is according to the European Parliament no more full democracy. Instead, conditions in the central European country have deteriorated so much that it has become an "elective autocracy," according to a report approved by a large majority of MPs in Strasbourg on Thursday.

The Hungarian government is trying to deliberately and systematically undermine the fundamental values ​​of the EU treaties, the report goes on to say. Also the inactivity of EU have contributed to "a disintegration of democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights in Hungary".

The European Parliament has long criticized Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's right-wing government. As early as 2018, MEPs initiated proceedings under Article 7 of the EU treaties against Hungary because they saw threats to democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights in the country.

However, the procedure is deadlocked in the Council of EU States. At the end of this could be the withdrawal of voting rights in the Council of Ministers.
