Several hundred demonstrators gathered in front of the Hungarian embassy in Prague to express their support for Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his policies in connection with the European Union and migration.
At the demonstration organised by the NGO Hear Citizens!, SPD party leader Tomio Okamura said: “Punishing a legitimate government for fulfilling its election manifesto is unacceptable.”
He noted that Orbán’s government had one of the most powerful mandates of any government in the EU.
Speakers including Czech lawmakers criticised the European Parliament’s decision to launch a procedure under Article 7 on the basis of the Sargentini report on the situation of the rule of law in Hungary.
