Orbán: Migrants ‘Should not Get a Single Cent’ from EU Budget – Radio Interview

By Hungary Today // 2018.05.04.
Three deputy prime ministers will be appointed to the new government, Viktor Orbán, the prime minister said in an interview to public radio on Friday.
Interior Minister Sándor Pintér will be deputy prime minister in charge of a new centralised office that will also function as a unified intelligence service, and Mihály Varga will be deputy prime minister in charge of the national economy, he said. Zsolt Semjén will retain his post in a general capacity.
A new prime minister’s office in charge of policy enforcement will coordinate the work public administration state secretaries in other ministries. The office will work together with the Government Control Office and the united intelligence service, Orbán said.
Meanwhile, Orbán also noted that a plan to amend the constitution to outlaw the relocation of migrants to Hungary will go ahead in the new government cycle. The “Stop Soros” package of bills, which the government submitted before the April 8 election, is a related effort, he said. “Soros’s shadow army should come out into the light,” Orbán said.
Orbán: Migrants ‘should not get a single cent’ from EU budget 
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in an interview on Friday that he does not support a European Union budget that takes money away from farmers, research and development and regional development, and gives it to countries that take in migrants.
Speaking to public radio, Orbán said the EU budget negotiations were expected to take a long time and he noted that a joint budget for seven years must be unanimously agreed on. “As long as Hungarians do not give the go-ahead, there’ll be no budget,” he said. Migrants, he added, should not be given “a single cent” and the relevant support should be provided by member states from their own budget. He added that he did not back curbing farm support.
