According to the official standpoint of the EPP, a vote was called in order to sanction the information campaign in Hungary that depicted billionaire George Soros along with President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.
But it is worth pointing out that the EPP’s outrage at the posters was no coincidence at all, especially when one takes it into account that Manfred Weber, lead candidate of the party demanded for Soros’ university to „stay” in Hungary – which of course was already fulfilled before Weber even announced his demands.
Besides Weber seems to have some issues regarding traditional conservative values. After all, EU Greens (a pro-immigration political force within the European Parliament) would love to work closely together with the EPP after the elections – on the condition that the EPP stops being „soft” on Viktor Orbán.
