Rule of law: MEPs met with Council Presidency before Hungary hearing

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 dicembre 2019

Civil Liberties Committee representatives took stock of latest developments and condemned the Council’s failure to ensure Parliament’s formal participation in the process.Key elements from Parliament’s reasoned proposal of 2018 and recent developments on democracy, rule of law and European values in Hungary were discussed during an informal meeting between Civil Liberties Committee (LIBE) and Council representatives early on 10 December, in preparation of the General Affairs Council of the same day. Parliament was represented by Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield (Greens, FR), rapporteur for the EP proposal to determine whether Hungary is at risk of breaching EU values, and Sophie in’t Veld (Renew, NL), Chair of the Democracy, Rule of Law and Fundamental rights Monitoring Group (DRFMG). The two MEPs praised the efforts of the Finnish Presidency in relation to rule of law issues and welcomed the initiative to meet. However, they reiterated that Parliament, having exercised its right of initiative under Article 7 of the Treaty of the European Union, has the right to be heard in a formal meeting of the Council, and its prerogatives as provided by the Treaties should be respected.
