Hungary is not doing well, the disbursement of European funds is in question

The experts of the European Commission concluded that Hungary failed to adopt 17 reforms in the field of the rule of law, which is a condition for unfreezing around 7.5 billion European funds, reports the German press agency dpa. The spokeswoman of the commission explained to the media today that the college of commissioners will probably decide on this next week.

The Brussels online portal Politico reports today that the European Commission was particularly critical of the new Hungarian Office for Integrity on Wednesday, as they doubt its power and independence. They were also critical of Budapest’s progress on commitments regarding asset declaration rules and the review of the prosecutor’s decision to open the case.

About the recommendation of the president of the commission Ursula von der Leyen and European commissioners regarding the freezing of funds for Hungary should be decided by the finance ministers of the member states.

Hungary is not doing well

Member States must take a decision by a qualified majority. This means that it must be supported by at least 15 of the 27 members of the union, which together must represent at least 65 percent of the population of the union.

According to dpa, Hungary is also doing poorly with regard to the payment of EUR 5.8 billion in grants from the European Fund for recovery from the covid-19 pandemic. The European Commission is supposed to give a positive opinion to the Hungarian national plan for recovery and resilience, which is the basis for drawing this money, but the funds are supposed to be disbursed only when Hungary fulfills 27 assumptions.

Among them are also 17 commitments, which are a condition for the unfreezing of 7.5 billion European funds. Among the conditions are the fulfillment of Hungarian reforms in the field of justice and the adoption of rules on reporting on funds from European funds.
