Szijjarto called the European Parliament one of the most corrupt bodies in the world

The European Parliament (EP) is one of the most corrupt organizations in the world, its credibility is almost completely undermined. This was stated by Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto.

The main reason for the lack of faith in the effectiveness of the EP, the diplomat called corruption scandals, which, according to him, demonstrated the essence of the body.

“I can remember very few statements, resolutions of the European Parliament that would help Europe. <...> Resolutions of the European Parliament usually harmed Europe, ”RIA Novosti quotes the politician.

Earlier, as Parlamentskaya Gazeta wrote, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the dissolution of the European Parliament in connection with ongoing investigations into cases of corruption in it, as well as for holding elections of deputies according to a new mechanism.

The scandal at the European Parliament came amid allegations of bribery and money laundering. Vice-chairman of the department Eva Kaili and deputy Maria Spiraki are charged with taking bribes from representatives of Qatar and trying to influence the policy of the European Union.
