“The European Union is making a political judgment on the Italian government’s budget”, Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovacs told Italian daily Libero.

"It seems obvious that with relation to the Italian budget, the EU should have kept to a technical, procedural evaluation, but instead has issued a political opinion," the spokesman stressed to Libero, according to Kormany.hu's summary.

He noted that Brussels is also considering a procedure against Hungary because of the country’s migration policy, which is based on closing its border, but “in this case, we are talking about an intervention that is not included in the EU’s sphere of competence”.
