During the plenary session of the European Parliament (10-13/09/2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs debate the rule of law in Hungary with Viktor ORBAN, Hungarian Prime Minister, before deciding whether the EU must act to counter the risk of a serious breach of EU values. If backed by MEPs, this would be the first time that Parliament takes the initiative of recommending that Article 7 be activated. Opening speeches by Judith SARGENTINI (Greens/EFA, NL), Ingeborg GRÄSSLE (EPP, DE), Petra KAMMEREVERT (S&D, DE), Maite PAGAZAURTUNDÚA RUIZ (ALDE, ES), Maria NOICHL (S&D, DE), Karoline EDSTADLER, Austrian State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior, Frans TIMMERMANS, First Vice-President of the EC in charge of Better Regulation, Inter-Institutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights, and Viktor ORBAN, Hungarian Prime Minister.
