Hungary willing to consider changes to media law â Critics say the law is âincompatibleâ with press freedom
Hungary will accept a European Union ruling on its controversial new media law and make any necessary changes, should the EU request them, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told a news conference on Thursday.
âWe are part of the EU, there are rules of the game,â Orban told reporters in Budapest. âAny procedure that the EU starts and initiates Hungary will accept.â
But the prime minister insisted that Hungaryâs new law was similar to legislation in other EU member states like Germany, France and the Netherlands, and said that if Hungary had to change its media law, other states should have to do the same.
âI defy anyone to find anything in our law that is not in other EU member statesâ media laws,â he said.
