Gulyas: Hungary contests voting rule under which Sargentini report was approved (adds details, other topics)

September 13th, 2018

Referring to the issue of whether abstentions were counted or disregarded under European parliamentary rules in the vote to open the Article 7 procedure against Hungary, the head of the Prime Minister's Office said on Thursday that the government's assessment was that the Sargentini report did not receive the required two-thirds majority. Under the EU's Lisbon Treaty, a vote by two-thirds of MEPs would have been required for the report's approval, and abstentions should have also been taken into account in the vote tally, Gergely Gulyas told a press conference. With the abstentions counted, the report would have failed to secure a two-thirds majority, he said. Gulyas said he did not believe that the EP's house rules contained any provisions saying that abstentions should not be counted in a vote.
