Hungarian farmland should be exempted from free movement of capital rules
Hungarian farmland should stay in domestic ownership and it should be exempted from rules on the free movement of capital, LMP leaders said on Wednesday.
LMP co-leaders Bernadett Szel and Akos Hadhazy were in Brussels to meet leaders of European green parties.
Hungarian ownership of farmland should be enshrined in the country's constitution instead of a cardinal law, Szel said.
The LMP leaders also said European Commission activities should fall under a brighter spotlight with free access to the minutes of commission meetings.
Meanwhile, they discussed with Tibor Navracsics, commissioner for education and youth affairs, the use of EU funds allocated for Hungarian education. Generous funding has dissipated, Hadhazy said, worsening the situation which is in any case hampered by "a bad curriculum and administrative system".
They also discussed prospects for the EU-Canada free trade pact (CETA) with Fidesz MEPs Jozsef Szajer and Ildiko Gall Pelcz, asking them to lobby the European People's Party for their support to ditch the accord.
European Green leaders will discuss Brexit, said Szel, adding that LMP will promote the rights of Hungarians to remain working in the UK.
