Abstract: In this press release of 12 January 2011, the EPP Group in the European Parliament "rejects all politically motivated accusations against the Hungarian government" over the recently adopted media legislation. "The Commission is [..] analysing the conformity of this law to the European legislation. The EPP Group is confident that, should some elements of the Media law have to be changed, Hungary would do so, as Prime Minister Orbán had already declared", says Joseph Daul, Chairman of the EPP Group, in the press release. The EPP Group "expresse[s] its solidarity and support towards the Hungarian government on the Media Act," the press release announces, and "calls on other political Groups in the European Parliament to stop making manipulative comments on the Hungarian Media Act and the Hungarian government". The EPP Group is the largest in the European Parliament, and includes the Hungarian governmental party Fidesz.
