Poland stands with Hungary against EU and will veto any sanctions against the country

Poland’s foreign ministry in Warsaw has noted it’s “concern” over Wednesday’s decision by Euro deputies to trigger a punitive procedure against Hungary citing [trumped up]accusations of flouting EU rules on democracy, civil rights and corruption.

The country announced it stands with Hungary against the EU and will veto any sanctions against its ideological ally. The foreign ministry said it “has noted with concern [Wednesday’s] decision of the European Parliament supporting the motion to trigger Art. 7.1 of the Treaty on European Union against Hungary.”

Adding: “Each EU Member State has a sovereign right to carry out the internal reforms that it considers appropriate.”

The European Commission took the step of triggering Article 7 of the EU Treaty against Poland in December. At that time, Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen pledged his country’s defence of Poland against the “unjust” and “political” measures by the EU, stating that it was unacceptable for Brussels to put pressure on sovereign EU member states, arbitrarily punishing democratically elected governments.

The Polish foreign ministry said after yesterday’s vote, “measures taken against Member States lead only to the deepening of divisions within the European Union, by increasing the current distrust of citizens in European institutions.”

Yesterday’s vote was deemed successful to trigger Article 7, however, there have been several challenges to the legality of it. Article 354 TFEU says that Article 7 requires two-thirds “of the votes cast”, therefore not including abstainers. The results of the vote were: 448 Yes; 197 No; 48 Abstain. Without the abstainers, it is clearly NOT two-thirds in favour of enacting Article 7 against Hungary.

Zoltan Kovacs, Government Spokesman, Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister of Hungary, said in a tweet: “It’s called FRAUD. EU Treaty clear about voting rules: requires 2/3 of all present. Do the math: 448 Yes; 197 No; 48 Abstain. That ain’t 2/3.

Irony? Pro-migration MEPs bashing Hungary for allegedly violating the rule of law resort to violating the rule of law to pass resolution.”

Poland’s foreign ministry has said in a statement posted on its website that Poland will “vote against any possible sanctions” that could be “imposed on Hungary within … European institutions”.

The European Commission has given the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland one month to change their minds on participating in the EU’s migrant relocation scheme.

“There is still time to change everything and come back to normality,” said EU migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos on Wednesday (26 July).

Hungary plans to produce GMO-free milk, eggs and meat

Hungary’s Ministry of Agriculture believes that keeping Hungarian agriculture GMO-free is a matter of “extremely high strategic importance.” In fact, Hungary’s Constitution states that:

Hungary shall promote the effective application of the right referred to in Paragraph (1) by an agriculture free of genetically modified organisms, by ensuring access to healthy food and drinking water, by organising safety at work and healthcare provision, by supporting sports and regular physical exercise, as well as by ensuring the protection of the environment.

The European Parliament voted in January 2015 that member states who wish to ban cultivation of GMOs would be able to. Over the years, Hungary has worked diligently to protect its sovereignty for fears of metaphorically being “swallowed by a large predatory fish,” i.e., the United States.

In May 2015, Jobbik reported that “US bio- and farming technology firms are apparently exercising significant pressure to soften European food safety regulations. He [Zoltán Balczó] specifically mentioned GMO’s potential further market penetration in Europe.”

Despite worries that the bullying of U.S. corporations may thwart EU nations’ efforts to ban GMO crops, Hungary is still moving forward with plans to produce “GMO-free milk, meat and egg products.” Continue reading Hungary plans to produce GMO-free milk, eggs and meat

Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000’s of acres of corn found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar.

Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. In a similar stance against GM ingredients, Peru has also passed a 10 year ban on GM foods.

“Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been planted with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary, deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said.

Hungary, in 2013, finally kicked out the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from its country. In July it announced its plans to repay the IMF bailout and for it to vacate the Budapest office. By August the same year, the Central European country had indeed arranged early payment of the loan.

A kindly worded letter from Gyorgy Matolcsy, the head of Hungary’s Central Bank , asked Managing Director, Christine Lagarde of the International Misery Fund, as some have fondly nicknamed it, to close the office as it was not necessary to maintain it any longer.
