Brexit: Can Boris Johnson count on Hungarian support?
Boris Johnson may be counting on Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to veto a postponement of Brexit. Hungary has said that it would make "its own choice" if the question arises.

According to Bloomberg, Johnson may be able to count on Hungary going against the wishes of the other countries of the European Union. The question is seriously being discussed in Brussels.
The European Union fears that the British Prime Minister will convince Hungary to veto a postponement of Brexit, resulting in an exit for the United Kingdom without an agreement. While the EU is rather in favor of anything that could prevent a “no deal” Brexit, Boris Johnson has made it clear since he came to power, that he does not want to negotiate.
Johnson’s position may have been understood by the Hungarian Prime Minister, who himself has had disputes with the European Union in recent years, particularly on the issue of migrants.
The rumors have been denied by the Hungarian Foreign Minister who, questioned by Bloomberg, said that if the EU countries must vote for a postponement of Brexit, Hungary will make “its own choice”.
“Many Western European member states want to end all this and want a decision to be made, one way or the other, so it’s probably not our decision that will be determining on this issue”, he added.
Some countries, especially France, have already expressed their skepticism about a new Brexit postponement but the European Union is trying at all costs to avoid a “no deal”, which it considers catastrophic and for which it does not want to be responsible.
Since his appointment as British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has promised that the United Kingdom would leave the European Union by October 31, whether there is an agreement or not. This choice is not shared by many British parliamentarians, who have caused many setbacks in the move in the past two weeks.
The Edinburgh Court of Appeals ruled earlier this week that the suspension of the British parliament, a decision made by Boris Johnson, was “illegal”. According to Scottish Justice, this choice is “intended to impede Parliament”.
Before this parliamentary break, which began on September 10, Boris Johnson was twice defeated by the House of Commons, which voted against his proposal to hold early general elections and passed a law requiring him to seek a new Brexit report.
