Viktor Orban has tried it again as always. More than once, the Hungarian Prime Minister has provoked his colleagues in the European people's party (EPP), with its slogans and actions against refugees, "Brussels", and think differently, then the protests come around, and shortly after, more. If it were up to him, would have repeated the game on Wednesday. But when the EPP comes together this time in Brussels, is clear: Orban and his Fidesz party are not part of, at least, in quarantine, in order to return the election campaign of the leading candidate, Manfred Weber is still more contaminating.
the behavior of The Hungarian heads of government in Europe, the election campaign had led to a "massive loss of confidence", CDU-Head of fixed Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer already upon Arrival in Brussels. While Orban had made a "first commendable steps". But not enough, for the avoidance of doubt.
out of the CDU Boss does not want to throw the Fidesz anyway. The German EPP-parties – the CDU, the CSU and the Austrian ÖVP – matched in the Trio Kramp-karrenbauer another proposal, the basis of the discussion in the Executive Board of the party of the family is: Orban's Fidesz loses, until Further notice, your membership rights; whether, and when, the troops must again have a say, a Council of the Three Wise men to judge, after he has looked at the behaviour of Hungary for a period of time.
A bit of Orban the candidate Weber was last updated. The poster campaign against EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is since the age of 15.March officially ended. For the invective of his critics as "useful idiots" of the Left and the Fidesz-chief in some of the European people's party has apologized politicians. Also on the third claim, he responded: Munich universities are likely to set up in Hungary, chairs "in the framework of cooperation" with the University of the US billionaire George Soros.daily mirror tomorrow location for Free order
The turn-in, however, followed the familiar pattern. The poster campaign had done its Hetzwirkung anyway. Of a return of the Soros University, who twirled around in front of massive pressure last year to Vienna, is not a speech. The apology was formulated in such vague terms that some of the addressees they refused. The main offended you didn't in the first place. Juncker also reiterated the demand that the man and his party to throw: With "Christian-democratic values" have to do the Act already for a long time.
Orban has a number of procedures on the neck
This is a polite euphemism. Orban has several EU-procedure for breach of contract and violations of the rule of law on the neck. Impressed him so something, always, when the Europeans threatened him to cut. Also on the German-Austrian Plan, he responded defiantly. Be a Department head, Gergely Gulyas Kramp cart Builder, a threat answered to the public with a counter-threat: It is here a question of self-respect – before the EPP suspend the Fidesz, will escape the party.
That would be exactly the scenario that wanted to avoid Weber and his friends. It was less to the handful of Fidesz-members as to the threat of fragmentation in the European Parliament. Orban's could exit the nucleus of an East-West division, was the concern, or of a new Confederation of the Destructive together with the Italian national Matteo Salvini.
diplomacy is not enough
In his years as EVP-group head has, the CSU-man in Weber, therefore, to the self-denial to compromise. He just gritted the teeth, when the then party leader Horst Seehofer and country group leader Alexander Dobrindt courted the Hungary. However, since Weber as a leading candidate in the European spotlight is not tough diplomacy, back-room as antidote to the evil provocateur.
Nevertheless, diplomacy came at the end of this time into the game. Kramp-Karrenbauer tried to make Orban the suspension as a "bridge" tasty. The finally agreed – against a concession: The Fidesz membership will be suspended in agreement. With the formula Orban has managed to maintain the semblance of voluntariness.
The Hungarian calls it a "good decision" because they keep the unit, and protested immediately, his party would support the joint top candidates. CSU leader Markus Söder is relieved: "It is good that now there is clarity." And the compromise, sprinkle the Christmas social, is of course, Weber's merit.More about

the other are satisfied. Orban could prove, that his party share the common values of the EPP, said Kramp-Karrenbauer. The three probation officers, at the head of Ex-President of the European Council, Hermann van Rompuy, will look at the. This will need a lot of time, predicts Weber – so anyway, about the European election. But one thing the candidate wants to know but stated that the exclusion of the Orban-force from the EPP, which is now by no means already off the table.
