The response of the EUROPEAN COMMISSION to the "Stop Brussels" Consultation of the Magyar Citizens by Their Own Government

In April 2017, the Hungarian government launched a national consultation of all Hungarian households, entitled «Stop Brussels», focusing on 6 specific issues. Several of the claims and allegations made in the consultation are factually incorrect or highly misleading. The European Commission would like to set the record straight – based on hard facts.
The European Union is not and has never been about «Brussels» but a project driven and designed by its Member States, each of which has decided unilaterally and democratically that this is the path they wish to adopt, including Hungary. Each and every one of those Member States, including Hungary, takes both the responsibility and the credit for the decisions taken collectively.
FALSE CLAIM n°1: “Brussels wants to force us to abolish the reduction in public utility charges”
TRUTH: The Commission shares the Hungarian government’s objective to have affordable energy for households. The best way to achieve this is to establish competitive energy markets and promote energy efficiency and innovation and to work together at European level to ensure security of supply.
Functioning markets offer people the choice between suppliers competing for lower prices and better service. Hungarian businesses buying and selling their energy on competitive markets are able to enjoy and offer decreasing electricity prices. In other EU countries where power prices are not regulated, household customers have seen their electricity prices decrease. Besides, Member States can use other means to reduce public utility charges than regulated prices.

FALSE CLAIM n°2: “Brussels wants to force Hungary to let in illegal immigrants”
TRUTH: The European Union is fighting irregular migration and is helping Member States to manage their external borders. Europe’s new Border and Coast Guard will strengthen the collective European efforts to manage borders more effectively. The EU is also working with countries where migrants come from or pass through to tackle the source of the problem. For example, the EU-Turkey Statement reduced arrivals by 98% in Greece. We are also working to improve the rate of return of irregular migrants who have no right to stay in Europe.
Irregular migration needs to be distinguished from seeking asylum. For genuine asylum seekers, the European Union lives up to the international obligations of all democracies to protect people – men, women and children – who have to leave their homes because of war. Because Europe now is an area in which all our citizens have the opportunity to move freely and live and work in other countries,responsibility for upholding basic humanitarian rights is shared among Member States. The Council of Ministers, in which Hungary has a fair say alongside other governments, has set the conditions for a dignified reception and fair legal process for asylum seekers. The Commission proposed to relocate up to 54,000 asylum applicants from Hungary to other Member States, but this proposal was opposed by the Hungarian Government. Hungary is therefore asked to accept a very limited number of asylum seekers (1,294) – not “illegal immigrants” – from the two most overburdened Member States, Greece and Italy. These people are carefully identified and include only those with a high chance of being genuinely eligible for refugee status. Relocation follows a thorough procedure and security screening by the future host country.

FALSE CLAIM n°3: “Illegal immigrants heading to Hungary are encouraged to illegal acts by not just the human traffickers but also by some international organizations”
TRUTH: The European Union has zero tolerance for human trafficking and has taken action for many years to combat this exploitative crime.
Saving lives at sea and looking after vulnerable people who have fled bloodshed and war and are in need of international protection is not the same thing as promoting irregular migration. There is no evidence of NGOs working with criminal smuggling networks to help migrants enter the EU. In case of any suspicions, Member States – and not the EU – have the power to investigate. Hungary is right to expect that its laws are respected, with the full support of the Commission and EU agencies such as Europol.
Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and other international organisations are, on the contrary, among the most reliable and valuable partners in dealing with the refugee crisis. They offer asylum seekers information and legal advice and also provide reception and care facilities, helping to ease the burden of Member States.

FALSE CLAIM n°4: “More and more organizations supported from abroad operate in Hungary with the aim to interfere in Hungarian internal affairs in a non-transparent manner”
TRUTH: The conditions under which Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) carry out their activities are in principle a matter of national law. The European Union, for its part, has strict rules on transparency and lobbying of the European institutions.
NGOs are an important component of civil society and provide valuable support for a democratic system of government. The EU institutions, like national governments and international organisations around the world, maintain an open, transparent and regular dialogue with civil society. Sometimes they agree with EU policies and sometimes they don’t, but we are never afraid to explain our work and allow them to do theirs, and it would be good to see the same space for this discussion at national level too.
Anyone seeking to influence EU policies by meeting the institutions is required to disclose their budget for the most recent financial year, including the amount of funding they receive from the EU. EU rules on transparency apply to all interest groups and all are treated alike. This transparency allows the public – in Hungary and across the EU – to be the judge of our work, and this public debate helps build a stronger democracy.
FALSE CLAIM n°5: “Brussels is attacking our job-creating measures”
TRUTH: Neither the Commission, nor the European Union, is attacking Hungarian job-creating policies.
On the contrary, the EU is massively supporting job creation in Hungary, having provided for example more than €21 billion to Hungary to support growth and jobs through regional policy funding alone in the period 2007-13. The Hungarian authorities have reported that this contributed to creating more than 150,000 jobs. Under the Juncker Plan’s European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), €26 million has so far been dedicated to operations in Hungary, which are expected to trigger €626 million in total investments in the country. The EU is a vital source of finance. For 2007-2013 the EU financed 57 % of all government capital investment in Hungary (the highest rate in the EU). Hungary is due to receive over €25 billion in EU investment during the period 2014-2020, the equivalent of €368 per Hungarian per year.
What’s more, the Hungarian government is responsible for its own national economic policy. EU law only provides for coordination of economic policies between the Member States. Any policy guidance is discussed and agreed by the Ministers of Finance or Ministers for Employment of all the Member States, with the full involvement of the Hungarian government.

FALSE CLAIM n°6: “Brussels is attacking our country because of tax cuts”
TRUTH: The European Commission does not interfere in national taxation policies, nor does it propose to do so. EU taxation rules must be agreed by all Member States unanimously, which means all current rules were approved by the Hungarian government.
The setting of corporate tax rates and income tax rates is a sovereign right of every Member State and the EU has no intention to meddle in that. All issues related to tax can only be agreed by the EU if all Member States – including Hungary – agree. And whilst the EU Member States have agreed only minimum VAT levels, the Hungarian government has decided to set the rate at 27%. This is the highest VAT rate in the entire EU.
EU minimum tax rules can only be amended if all Member States agree to it, so there cannot be any change without the agreement of the Hungarian government. Hungary has adopted a reduced VAT rate for internet services which breaches the rules which Hungary has agreed to at EU level. This is why the Commission has reminded Hungary of the rules it had agreed to. The Commission will make proposals this year for Member States to have more freedom on VAT rates. This will need unanimous support of all Member States.

Paolo Socillo
Paolo Socillo I will never understand why someone if a country doesn't want the migrants , they must accept them , why this obligation ? bring them to Soros house or Rothschild house or bring them to langley Virginia, If people are dying in Syria or Afghanistan or Nigeria it's not our problem, we are not responsible for the wars around the world .When Nato started the war against Gheddafi helping Al Qaeda rebels ( by the way ) on the ground , nobody said nothing , these rebels lynched thousand of black people in Lybia , nobody said nothing especially in Italy where the goverment already decided that the Italians must die and must be replaced by black people.
Serban Pisica
Serban Pisica Nobody is forcing anyone to accept immigrants. That and the mention of rotchild and soros makes you sound like rambling lunatic! Italians must die and be replaced? Are you insane? Do you think before you post? Get this through your head: there is a difference between immigrants and legal refugees. The EU does want each member state to accept a quota of refugees, because IT HELPS GREECE AND ITALY! This is about hungary and all member states helping 2 member states overburdened with refugees! Maybe Italy and greece made a mistake giving asylum to so many refugees, but once granted legal status as a refugee, theyre stuck with them. The eu is merely trying to help them. Which makes perfect sens and a few thousand people for each member state is nothing.
Paolo Socillo
Paolo Socillo hahahahhaha , you are very funny Mister Pisica , I like you :) , First I'm not insane and I think all the minutes of my life that's the problem maybe 1) there is a difference between immigrants and legal refugees ? it doesn't seems like this , in Italy last year after the analysis of the requests for the status of refugee only the 10 % of the requests were approved the others were economic migrants that remained here, some of them started to work , the majority started a wonderful career of drug dealers or you can see them outside Supermarket asking for 1-2 euro to survive, because they can't find job , there isn't job also for italian people, how can they find a job ? If you are a real refugee you simply go to the embassy of the country you would like to move then you apply for the status of refugee then the nation can organize humanitarian corridor, too logical maybe the implementation of such program ?. 2) there are refugees ? why ? who created wars ? who created the persecutions ? i don't have any problem if around me there are people with different color of the skin or religion , I'm also a migrant in a certain way , living abroad most of the time during of the year. On the other hand I don't accept that a man from Afghanistan must live close to me because The CIA destroyed the country to get the control of opium production or dictatorships have been implemented in Africa and Middle East by multinational companies creating , poverty , hunger , destruction because a small group of people must pay the oil much less than they should pay. In Syria when Assad refused the passage of the oil pipeline , he magically became a terrible dictator with Usa started to finance groups like Al Nusra or Isis .In Lybia when Nato has bombed Gheddafi , for the democracy of course :D , On the ground there were Al-Qaeda , the British special forces the Qatari Special forces all together like a big family , the rebels on the ground lynched thousands of black people , I never heard a politician in Italy said a word for them ,but I hear them on the news everyday , poor syrians ,poor Afghani people , poor black people they are under persecution , of course they make money with them and one day when these people will look for a job, they will be a fantastic cheap labour force , Mission accomplished mister Khalergi (Y)

So meldete der britische „The Daily Express“ in seiner Ausgabe vom 11. Oktober 2008, dass nach einem Geheimplan der Brüsseler Ökonomen die EU in den nächsten Jahrzehnten 56 Millionen Immigranten aus Afrika nach Europa holen wolle. Sie würden als Arbeiter in der europäischen Wirtschaft, aber auch benötigt, um dem demografischen Niedergang Europas aufgrund dessen niedriger Geburtenquote entgegenzusteuern.was werden wir machen mit die Eu- Bürger dass wenig kompetenzen haben ? das ist kein Spiel , vielleicht für die EU stehenden Eliten ja.
Haha this is the only thing you can say :D, when someone speak with a logical way of thinking has to be fascist for sure? My dear Lord, the politicians must be koret and maintained correctly, and make the interest to the community, not the interest of the banks, the IMF, soros and friends, I can see every day politician interested only for the immigrants but until now I didn't see a politicians gesgat that has this war needs to end now. So the British "Daily Express" in its issue dated 11. October 2008 that, according to a secret plan of the Brussels economists the EU in the next few decades, 56 million immigrants from Africa to Europe get wool. You'd be as workers in the European economy, but also needed to the demographic decline of Europe due to its low birth rate. What are we gonna do with the eu citizens that have few powers? This is not a game, maybe its for the eu elites yes.

Nikola Kožuljević European Commission I understand the effort and the need for answers and defending a position. But, I think its a bit too much to answer that on SM. Especially if the arguments are made on the session of EP.
What you are saying that the EP session is not enough, but Social Media efforts are needed to spread facts? (and yeah this posts do cost some resources, in one form or another. Resources pooled from all MS). Also, isn't the EP a place for a debate, just like as mr. Frans mentions. And ultimately, a decision what is a fact or not, good or not, is a parliamentary decision. Not an opinion of one MP or even a group. What you are doing is pushing one piece of thought outwards, not as a part of debated and parliamentary process, but as a part of one MP, a group or even a commission. And like that you're disregarding other voices and opinions. How are you then better then 'them'?

Like Mr. Frans said, if the dialogue is not achieved, an action will be needed. And by presenting these here, isn't this pushing an idea, a direction, as it seems without a debate. At least you're making it like so in this instance. 

Additionally, if there are problems with Hungary, why not make intra institutional mechanisms and procedures to fix the problems? If the problems exists, and if there is no solution, it means that EU is powerless in this regards or the institutions are not functioning. As you probably know, EU MS decide the direction of the EU, decide the responsibility and credit of work - if there is a problem with MS and you are not able to fix it in the institutions - why do any of procedures or treaties exist? 

What I'm trying to say, that I see this SM update as a precedent. Though publicly acceptable but institutionally extremely worrying. 

Does this practice mean that all the issues and problems ahead will not be debated or fixed in parliamentary fashion and institutions? But ideas and dialouges promoted on Social Media? On Facebook? 

Why do we need parliaments and politicians then, when we can do all on facebook. Right?

And all of you thinking that I mean this as a inherently bad criticisim, well, you ignorant fools. Ridicule the argument. What if one day the Commission pushes for an agenda you dont agree with? Like adding pesticides or enabling animal experiment? Or any, that you dont support? Would this be Ok then?

The problem is that one of growingly important aspects of society, which is information, is drifting away from the formal scripts of the past into very creative and informal fields! 
So, the media teams promoting and enlightening people about the EU must leave the safety of scripts behind and embrace creativity in reaching out. Even though there are some risks of controversy, usually the gains are immense.
As an example, in Facebook and twitter, you should take a look at a few anglo saxonic police forces that use humour to reach out citizens with a huuuuge... sorry, I mean significant success.

You keep telling yourself that everything is right with the EU, that it's only a misperception, that the people are wrong. While you do that, extreme right wing parties will continue to rise. Maybe not this year, but if you keep ignoring that EU was made for Europeans (jewish-christian moral matrix societies) and if you don't solve the economical crisis that goes for almost 10 years now, I'm pretty sure it will be on the next election cycle. Austria almost did it, Netherlands almost did it, France it's almost there, and in the south of europe everyone is starting to be pissed with this economical and migrants crisis. We don't have jobs for us, and unfortunately that means, we don't have jobs for them! We have our social problems, with older citizens not having money for vital pharmaceuticals but we're giving away money and houses for migrants (most of them are economical migrants, lets be honest here! So for that, they should apply for visas!). 

So even if dodge this french bullet like you did with the austrian and dutch ones, it's only a matter of time until another right wing "bullet" will be shot at you, and at the long term I'm not sure if you can keep dodging.

A good step would be to improve and expand the social pillar of the EU thereby addressing inequality among and within EU countries (combined with reforms!!). Note that this issue can't be addressed without the EU. EU is needed for this but we gotta get out of the neo-liberal death cycle of the previous decades which has proven increasingly good for the privileged few and a curse for the rest. That is, from my humble point of view, a necessary next step to meet the legitimate worries of citizens within EU and to provide social safety and hope for the future. Also and not least for the troubled south. Note that this will not take less EU but More EU. And so be it! And I think Germany will need to understand that this is the price they need to pay for the sustainability of an EU which is very much serving their interests. Go Schultz!!!

First thing EU entities have to do in any debate, is insist on their democratic mandate, and object any claims about "undemocratic" nature of EU institutions and entities in the beginning of every debate. Having said that, just as Guy Verhofstadt has rightfully pointed out Hungarian government is even more hypocrite then Eurosceptics like Le Pen and Farage. Eurosceptics don't like EU and want their countries out of it. Hungarian government objects and sabotages EU norms and values at every step of the road, yet wants to stay in EU and use all benefits of the membership.

Zlatina Todorova FALSE CLAIM n°1: “Brussels wants to force us to abolish the reduction in public utility charges” ! Really? Like you did in Bulgaria? We pay the most expensive electricity due to your companies owning our electricity network. We pay for shity food, imported by your companies, we have no economy, we have nothing, but the fat imbeciles who you always try to put as MP! Thank you EU, we were better without you! And so does any other country fleeing from your chocking hug!

Stela Hoxha
Stela Hoxha Facts, not opinions. Electricity in your country is a monopolistic market or not? Because if it is not monopolistic than free market and Internal regulation are the only one responsable for the prices you pay...Or its a monopolistic market own by the State? In both cases, EU has a very small role in it. And how is it possible you dont know the names of these companies? Thay cant be secret. Plese give us the names, i want to gen informed how does these companies operate and who is resposable for them and than if its the EU we can speak.
Zlatina Todorova
Zlatina Todorova Really??? But the next day after the government resigned and the democrats took it, they filled the shops with everything. Sorry we are not that stupid.

Stela Hoxha you took only one firm...I am saying another thing, i am saying MOSTLY of electricity suppliers are State Owned...And just to learn: CEZ is also operating in Albania, which is not in the EU...How can it be an EU company? Sorry but your arguments are really fullish. I read in 30 min more than 5 articles on your energy supply market and in all of these articles it was clearly specified that your energy supply is a monopolistic state owned supply...It means that YOUR State give concession to other firms, not the EU...and being a monopolistik one, means that firms control price and quantity. The EU is trying to free the market...Basic of microeconomics: free market and free competition will provide lower prices.
Stela Hoxha
Stela Hoxha Articles of 2016: The highly regulated Bulgarian electricity market is dominated by a few major players that have built a supply monopoly in the country. Despite the legal unbundling of the three distribution system operators from its vertically integrated undertaking, there is no real competition in the distribution market that could enable consumers to choose their supplier as there is only one licensed supplier in each geographical region. A recent study on the energy sector governance in Bulgaria highlights the state capture in the energy sector, the high dependency of the country on the imports of Russian gas and technology, the frequent changes in the legislative and regulatory environment and energy poverty as the major challenges in the energy restructuring process. Energy prices on the regulated market are fixed, by reference, or formula- based, indicating low levels of competition in the energy sector. The country’s regulatory regime is unpredictable and American companies have faced problems with enforcing existing contracts.
Bulgaria's day-ahead power exchange, the Independent Bulgarian Energy Exchange (IBEX), began in January as the Balkan country pushed ahead with plans to fully liberalize its energy market and make it more transparent. In 2017, IBEX plans to introduce an intra-day market and team up with another power exchange in southeastern Europe and will launch a platform for trading long-term contracts. Bulgaria is working with the EC and the World Bank on a model that will allow it to gradually phase out regulated energy prices for small businesses and households while protecting the most vulnerable consumers.

Simon Howell Zlatina Todorova I know about the empty shops. I was there with a party of 35 children but there was not enough snow. No one's fault. Our guide was very good in trying to entertain us and we loved our visit to the Rila Monastery, to Plovdiv to Sofia and the mountain walks.we were well looked after, fed as well as most school groups could expect and made to feel welcome. The children were amazed that the good kind staff in our hotel asked them if they could keep the empty plastic bottles they had thown in the bin. I asked our guide if we could visit one or two shops. He agreed and the desolation was almost total. A few catering size tin foods, out of date, some string and a very few other items of poor value and quality. The shops were just empty shelves. After visiting 5 shops which we picked we happily were able to visit the Cathedral for Vespers and see the genuine roots of Orthodox religion.happily the demonstration which had taken place just before our visit at Easter did not erupt in violence. The government knew that communism was finished for Bulgaria. I am sure that despite corruption, to be found in all countries, lifeis much better under the EU. As a nation you must work hard to resist any attempt to leave the EU. They are in place to help poorer nations develop among many other most worthy aims.

I have seen its positive influence on our country economy and stability. but does brings a lot of painful reforms that not everybody is ready to accept. I am not saying that EU is perfect, far for this, but no matter how you look if you strictly look at the facts the positives outweighs the negative, or at least for my country.

It's not gonna change the reality! 4 million less, empty villages, poor towns, low wages, suffering retired people, no healthcare, no social policy, highest mortality rate, immune diseases we've never herd of, cancer, autism and so on ...! Do you really think that your facts from an article can change Bulgarian people opinion about EU? IF EU is so self aware, why don't they have an open referendum about member countries opinion? Well ... would they dare to do so? Even our country couldn't dare to ask us, because they new the answer - NO, NO, NO!!! No Country ever benefited from joining, apart form the original colonisation experts! We the poorest ones keep supporting the economy and that is the idea of the eu!
Stela Hoxha
Stela Hoxha You should learn to distinguish EU competences from National State competences. You lack basic knowledge of EU Law and function. You really really lack information. I feel sorry for you. If there was a disincentive to enter, you would never have joined the EU...and just for you to know sth: NOBODY IS FORCED TO STAY IN...YOU CAN GET OUT AT ANY TIME...but i wonder, why don't you do so? Go, get informed. You really lack basic information.

Christian Ivanov
Christian Ivanov On the behalf of most thinking and educated Bulgarians, please accept my apologies, about the lumpenised and angry Bulgarian lady rambling her way around here as well as around rational and critical arguments. The majority of Bulgarians do support the country's membership in the European Union. What you need to understand is that Bulgaria as well as its energy market are captured by a small number of former mafiosi and security guards among others, who have amassed enormous amount of power and reign supreme. Whilst at the same the meagre degree of press freedom, economic prosperity etc. brought about by the elites' incompetence and greed have been preventing people to uncover what has been causing their destituteness. As a result, a scapegoat is needed, according to her that is the EU, but as you have all seen, she does not even posses the rudimental most basic knowledge about what the EU does or does not do. Ignorance is not a bliss, and she has just proved it. Thanks to all of you who have tried to persuade her otherwise.

`In 15 Member States, the European Union mostly conjures up a positive image (up from
12 in autumn 2014). More than half of the population share this view in Romania (62%),

Ireland (57%), Lithuania (55%), Bulgaria (55%), Poland (53%), Luxembourg (52%) and
Malta (51%)`. (STANDARD EUROBAROMETER 83 FIRST RESULTS – SPRING 2015 ). Moreover, if that was not the case the socialist party and the united patriots combined would have received far more votes than just 1.3 million, as these are the two most eurosceptic parties in Bulgaria. I would be looking forward to see how many votes would KURneliq receive, if she officially announced that her party is against Bulgaria's EU membership.
