Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Monday that "Hungary's government and its head" cannot be in the position to support a European Commission presidential candidate who has announced that he does not want the vote of Hungarians. At a joint press conference held with Vice-Chancellor of Austria Heinz-Christian Strache, Orban was asked to comment on ruling Fidesz's decision to withdraw support for Manfred Weber's candidacy. Weber has said he does not want to become commission president with the help of votes from Hungary, Orban added. "This is a serious position and a violation of the principle to always respect voters," Orban said. The government does not consider any of the candidates in the EC presidential campaign to be suitable and "we are looking for a suitable candidate", he told the press conference.
