Serhat TUNAR -TDO- At a meeting at the level of ambassadors held by the European Union in Brussels, it was announced that Hungary and Poland vetoed the budget, which was previously agreed upon and approved by the European Parliament in early November.
Hungary and Poland vetoed the European Union's budget for 2021-2027 because of the rule of law requirement. The fact that these two countries vetoed the budget because of the rule of law requirement means a new crisis within the European Union.
Hungarian government officials had earlier announced that they would veto the mechanism linking the distribution of funds in the European Union Budget to the rule of law. After Hungary's statement, Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro said: "I believe that Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, like Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, will use this veto."
