House Speaker Kövér: EU May be Over by 2030

Fanni Kaszás 2020.02.27.

László Kövér, Speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly, talked to Katolikus Rádió (Catholic Radio) on Wednesday, when he said he would not dare to bet a great amount that the European Union will still exist in 2030.

Kövér said there are two sides that cannot be compromised which are clashing, with those who think that there can be a democracy based on unlimited freedom on one side, and those who think that democracy can only be based on the balance between order and freedom on the other side.

He added that democracy could not stand against the will of the majority, and it now seems that this is becoming a trend in Europe. The House Speaker called the future of the European Union questionable. He said:

I would not dare to bet a great amount that the European Union will still exist in 2030.

Kövér also talked about the Gyöngyöspata case, in which he says a small minority wants to put significant amounts in their pockets with the help of lawyers and the Soros network. He said that in his view, “law and justice cannot be confronted with one another.”

Kövér also talked about how he sees that there are MPs from a younger age group in the Parliament with serious shortcomings in their education- but there is an even more serious problem caused by the changing communication, which resulted in Parliament losing its importance as a stage for debate and the only thing they could get to the internet portals are scandals, and “the arguments, the opinion of the other does not matter” anymore.
