Politico Europe, Ryan Heath, April 11, 2019.
Nr 4, Judith Sargentini.
Sargentini is indelibly linked to efforts to stop Hungary sliding into right-wing authoritarianism. The Dutch Green MEP fought against the odds to condemn Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for violations of core EU values, convincing a two-thirds majority in Parliament to denounce Orbán’s government in September 2018, on the back of a report bearing her name. Among those forced to concede ground was Manfred Weber, the leader of the biggest political group in the Parliament and now candidate for European Commission president.
