The president's veto letter to the National Assembly of Hungary contained unusually sharp critique from a member of Orban’s inner circle
The country has been criticised by international human rights groups as discriminating against LGBTQ+ people
The EU also sued Hungary for breaching EU telecoms rules over refusal to renew the license of a broadcaster critical of the Orban government
Besides parliamentary elections there was a referendum on LGBTQ+ issues about sex ed & availability of info on sex reassignment to kids
A spokesperson for the EU said its refusal to sign-off on Hungary's recovery plans is not related to the anti-LGBTQ laws.
"These proposals, which have dark echoes of Russia’s anti-gay “propaganda law”, will further stigmatize LGBTQI people."
