Tabajdi: the lack of Hungarian election districts in Ukraine is unacceptable
According to the Hungarian socialist member of European Parliament (MEP) Csaba Tabajdi the European Union should call every country to account on legal certainty. MEP Tabajdi, also head of the Hungarian delegation of socialists in the European Parliament said that politics in Ukraine deeply influence legal issues. As an example he underlined the fact that former prime minister and symbol of the orange revolution in Ukraine in 2004, Yulija Tymoshenko was taken to court. As MEP Tabajdi said, the action taken against Tymoshenko was wholly constructed by politics.

This was not the only case which was injuring legal certainty, Tabajdi said. He drew attention to the fact that Ukrainian authorities defined the borders of election districts without considering their international legal obligations of respecting the national minority’s geographical distribution. This way Hungarian national minority in Ukraine will not even have any chance to be represented after the next parliamentary elections. Europe should clearly stand up for the rights of national minorities, not just in Ukraine, but also in Hungary or everywhere else in the European Union, head of the Hungarian socialist delegation MEP Tabajdi said. MEP Tabajdi, also speaker of the National Minority Intergroup in the European Parliament finally added that the European Union should send a clear sign to the Ukrainian government. According to MEP Tabajdi it was a right decision of European leaders not to get in touch with the leaders of the system of Ukrainian president Yanukovych.

Europe wants change
According to the socialist Member of European Parliament (MEP) dr. Zita Gurmai Europe arrived to a turning-point. MEP Gurmai, also head of PES Women, the woman organization of the socialists in the European Parliament said that more and more citizens find to get their way out of the economic and social crisis through progressive solutions. She underlined that people were voting for solutions which put not the economy but the people first. MEP Gurmai was taking part in a conference in Berlin, organized with the title “The time of woman has come” by the German Social Democrats (SPD). Leading European and German politicians were attending the event.
