Hungary: Illiberal Democracy fails in the European Parliament

By triggering the Article 7 procedure, the European Parliament has made it clear that illiberal democracy is against the core values of the European Union. The Hungarian Helsinki Committee welcomes that the EP has validated, with a two-third majority, the long-standing concerns over the Hungarian political system. This enables Member State governments to adequately address in the Council the serious and systemic deficiencies threatening the rule of law and democracy in Hungary. This may be the last moment for the EU institutions to send a clear signal to governments that are keen to copy the Hungarian practices of weakening constitutional democracy. The dialogue conducted in the Council serves to protect the rights of Hungarian citizens, and provides a chance for defending democracy both in Hungary and in Europe. In this process, Hungarian society, including the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and all civil society actors will have an important role to play.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
