(Bloomberg) -- Hungary should be excluded from the European Union’s ministerial meetings because of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s move to take sole command of the nation, Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said.
“We cannot accept that there exists a dictatorial government within the EU,” said Asselborn in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt. “Hungary immediately belongs into strict political quarantine. The Hungarian government should no longer have a seat at the table of the European institutions.”
In the country’s fight against the coronavirus, Hungary’s parliament handed Orban the right to rule by decree indefinitely on Monday, effectively giving him control for as long as he sees fit.
