Alliance of European Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) Supports CEU

Guy Verhofstadt, ALDE Group leader, said: “ We stand with all the Hungarian citizens that marched this weekend in Budapest to oppose their Government's illiberal crackdown on the Central European University. After weakening the Constitutional Court, limiting freedom of the media and harassing civil society, the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is now attacking the centrepiece of academic excellence in Hungary: the CEU. Orban is a threat to liberal democracy. We must take action.”
