Will the EU fulfil its agreement with Poland after Poland has finally done its part? Will it release the recovery funds to aid Poland’s battered economy? Or will it starve Poland till the upcoming election?
Parliamentary elections will be held on April 3 in Hungary. Europeanists and the left hope Orbán will finally be unseated by the United opposition. That seemed like a likely possibility till recently, but the 6-party alliance and its independent candidate have been successfully messing things up. Disunited and unfocused they’ve failed to use Orban’s connections to Putin against him. Instead Orbán has successfully painted his neutralism as the safer bet.
