Hungary PM

Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orbán has withdrawn his endorsement of European People’s Party lead candidate Manfred Weber for European Commission president.

Speaking in a joint press conference with far-right Austrian deputy chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, Mr Orbán, whose Fidesz party was suspended from the EPP on March 20 for its democratic backsliding, has criticised the EPP spitzenkandidat for his promise not to accept the Hungarian ruling party’s support for the position of EU Commission president.
