first_imgBut their letter strengthens the hand of its addressee, party chairman Donald Tusk, the former Polish leader and president of the European Council, who is pushing the EPP to distance itself from Orban.The signatories call on the EU executive, the European Commission, to “address the situation in Hungary forcefully” and brand Orban’s move a “violation of the founding principles of liberal democracy and European values”.Shortly before the parties’ letter was made public, European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said she was “particularly concerned” about Hungary and promised to monitor the situation.And 13 EU members, including heavyweights France and Germany, without explicitly naming Hungary, warned Wednesday against “violations of the principles of rule of law, democracy and fundamental rights”. Thirteen European center-right parties called Thursday for their political group to expel Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party after its leader Prime Minister Viktor Orban assumed emergency powers.Orban insists he must rule by decree in order to tackle the spread of the coronavirus epidemic. But many, including some of his allies in the European Peoples Party (EPP), say his power grab has gone too far.The Scandinavian, Greek, Belgian, Lithuanian  Czech and Slovak conservatives who signed Thursday’s statement calling for Fidesz to be kicked out of the EPP do not represent a majority of the group. The EPP is the biggest single voting bloc in the European Parliament and the party of both von der Leyen and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel.But it is not in itself a majority, and some EPP parties have wanted to keep Orban’s Hungarian MEPs on board in the center-right grouping to avoid them siding with eurosceptic populists.Germany’s ruling CDU party was not among the group of parties that issued the joint call for Fidesz’s expulsion, and Orban has been lobbying its leader, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, to back him over Tusk. The letter was signed, however, by the leaders of 13 conservative or-right parties, including two serving prime ministers; Kyriakos Mitsotakis of Greece and Erna Solberg of Norway.  center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgEverton have been warned they will have to pay the full market value if prospective manager Roberto Martinez wants any of his former Wigan players. Latics chairman Dave Whelan admits he has struck no deal to prevent the Spaniard returning to cherry-pick their top stars, but if he does he will not get favourable treatment. “If Everton want to sign any of our players for the right amount of money we will consider it,” he told Press Association Sport. “There is no agreement (to prevent Martinez returning for stars he nurtured at the DW Stadium). It is unfair and I don’t believe in anything like that. It is normally the case certain players want to play in the Premier League and I can’t blame them for that. Players sign contracts but sometimes one or two want to leave and it is difficult to stop them. “Players are players and I believe in freedom in football. But we have a lot of players who are loyal to Wigan Athletic so we will just wait and see.” The Toffees have yet to conclude negotiations with Martinez over their vacant manager’s position, but he is slowly edging closer to being confirmed as David Moyes’ successor. Whelan is believed to have negotiated compensation of about £1.5million, but there may be further haggling required in order to secure a number of his trusted lieutenants. With Moyes’ coaching staff still on the books – there has yet to be any confirmation of which, if any, he will be taking to Manchester United – it remains to be seen what changes will be made. That may complicate Martinez’s requirements as he is almost certain to want to bring assistant Graeme Jones, who followed him from Swansea to Wigan four years ago, and most likely others as well. Everton are unwilling to be drawn into any pronouncements, public or otherwise, until the deal for Martinez is signed and sealed. They were moved to issue a statement on Monday night highlighting “regrettable and somewhat premature reports” – emanating from Whelan – that their search for a manager had been concluded. Former striker Kevin Campbell believes the Spaniard will have an immediate impact at the club. “It will be fascinating. I think he’ll be a breath of fresh air,” he told talkSPORT. “The way he plays the game, the fans are going to like the style and I think the players are going to improve, and that’s really important.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
