“It is time to say goodbye,” wrote Katalin Novak, Secretary of State for the Family, in a tweet accompanied by a letter of termination from the international secretariat of Fidesz.

Lhe party of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban slams the door of the European People’s Party (right), a government minister announced on Thursday, two weeks after leaving the EPP group in the European Parliament after years of tug-of-war.

“It is time to say goodbye,” wrote Katalin Novak, Secretary of State for the Family, in a tweet accompanied by a letter of termination from the international secretariat of Fidesz.

The break this Thursday is more formal than unexpected, since it follows years of internal conflict in the largest political family of the European Parliament. Fidesz’s membership in the EPP group of the European Parliament had already been suspended in March 2019, not only because of the multiple verbal attacks by the populist leader against the President of the European Commission at the time, Jean-Claude Juncker, but also illiberal policies led by this nationalist-conservative party, accused of undermining the independence of the judiciary, the media and the academic world, the rights of associations or the right of asylum.

Viktor Orban’s Hungary was in 2018, after Poland in 2017, the second EU country to be targeted by the so-called article 7 procedure, which gives the possibility of sanctioning a state that does not respect the founding values ​​of the EU. The European Commission, for its part, has launched multiple appeals against Viktor Orban’s policies before the EU Court of Justice.

At the beginning of March, Fidesz had already withdrawn from the PPE group in Parliament, denouncing the adoption of a reform of the statutes. The modification of these internal rules is supposed to allow the suspension or even the exclusion of entire delegations, and no longer just of individual parliamentarians. The EPP party was to meet soon to decide on the exclusion of Fidesz, demanded by its president, the Polish Donald Tusk, and by 13 member parties, around a hard core made up of the Benelux countries and the Scandinavian countries.

The previous attempts had met with the refusals of the Christian Democrats (CDU) of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Without waiting, Fidesz had taken the lead by announcing its departure itself.

The Hungarian sovereignist Prime Minister now wishes to rebuild the European right around its values ​​with “the Poles” and the Italian sovereignist tribune Matteo Salvini.
