Hungary ‘not a full democracy’- EU Parliament

Hungary can “no longer be considered a full democracy,” the European Parliament said in a statement following its adoption of a report on Thursday.

“Overall, [The European Parliament] expresses regrets that the lack of decisive EU action has contributed to a breakdown of democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights in Hungary, and turning one of its member states into hybrid regime of electoral autocracy,” the report read.

Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Oban, has for years been locked in a series of disagreements with the EU over issues ranging from rights of women, migrants, gays, indepedence of the judiciary, media and academia.
