It wouldn't be necessary to amend the Constitution for the fifth times said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Friday to radio magazine '180 minutes'.
The relevant passages of the Constitution - such as the possibility of transfering cases between courts - are fully in line with European values and the practices of other European countries, said the prime minister. In his view, the European Union is abusing its power; it demands things from us that it doesn't require from other countries. However, since Hungary waging a multifront war for independence - among other things, on the field of equitable taxation and the reduction in overhead costs - "sometimes concessions have to be made".
The government has decided - "although grudgingly" -to accept the demands of the European Uninion even if those demands infringe on the sovereignty of our country said the prime minister.
He remarked that the constitutional amendment issue sparked a lively debate within the Fidesz party, as there are "lots of MPs that are committed to the national sovereignty of our country". Therefore, many faction members had to be convinced to support the resolution by telling them that they were right in opposing Eu's demands, but now, the country's interest requires to support the amendment of the Constitution even if those demands are unreasonable.
The government decided this week that it proposes the amendment of the Basic Law based on the projections of the European Commission.
