Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, in a letter to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, asked for the resignation of Vice-President Vera Jourova for calling Hungary “a sick democracy”. However, von der Leyen retains “full confidence” in Jourova.

Jourova, a Czech liberal who, as vice-president, is responsible for the protection of democratic values ​​and the rule of law, had lashed out sharply at the evolution of Hungary under Orban in an interview with the German magazine ‘Der Spiegel’. “Orban likes to say that he is building an illiberal democracy. I would say he is building a sick democracy,” said the Czech.

Humiliation

Illiberal democracy means that the people still choose the government, but that the openness of the government is limited. The rights of the people are not taken very seriously either.
