Zoltán Kovács, the state secretary for international communications, called for the resignation of European Commission Vice-President Vera Jourova on Friday, over her recent comment in connection with EU funds.

The state secretary reacted to a series of tweets by the vice president for values and transparency in which she said it was the “bare minimum” to expect that EU funds coming from European taxpayers should go where the rule of law was “not under threat”.


In his reply, Kovács said Jourova had “betrayed” her “political bias” when she referred to Hungary as a “sick democracy” and “insulted” Hungarian voters by saying that they were “unable to form an independent opinion”. He added that “you’re unfit to represent the values that you preach. Time to resign.”
