"Ulf Kristersson: the Dialogue with Hungary is no longer enough."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE the Conservatives have for many years strongly criticized Viktor Orbán and the Hungarian government party Fidesz. We have a long time and in several different ways also raised the issue in our center-right european political group EPP. It is quite obvious that the Fidesz will not change the setting in the fundamental questions. "
"I will, now that the leader of the Conservatives push to Fidesz should be excluded from the EPP."
"the Developments in Hungary has long been headed in the wrong direction. Viktor Orbán has spent the last eight years with the step-by-step to make a strong political intervention on the Hungarian rule of law. It is, inter alia, if the deterioration on the independence of the judiciary, freedom of expression and the protection of minorities. "
"The Hungarian state has also time and again launched pure propaganda campaigns. During last year's elections to the Hungarian parliament covered the entire country with thousands of posters where the EU and the migration piece was presented as a threat to the Hungarian people. "
"The Hungarian businessman George Soros has on several occasions been attacked with anti-semitic undertone."
"the Conservatives have from day one supported the Article 7 procedure against Hungary, as well as the Commission's proposal that, in the long-term budget linking the payment of contributions to the rule of law. It is a matter of course. "
"And even before that, in april last year, wrote Gunnar Hökmark to the management of the EPP and the inskärpte the criticism further. No later than yesterday demanded the Conservatives by Hökmark an extraordinary EPP-meeting to once again take up the issue of Orbán's suitability. "
"But when a party acts in violation of democracy and the rule of law is no longer sufficient dialogue. "
"It may take a longer time than that for us to push through Fidesz to leave the EPP. But the Conservatives have for a long time been a leader in the movement to get them to leave. Sooner or later, we believe that it will succeed. "
"After all, it is the Moderates who belong to the bourgeois partigruppen EPP together with our friends and close allies in Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Angela Merkel's Germany. "
