(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 29 SET - Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban requested the immediate resignation of European Commission Vice President Vera Jourova in a letter to EC President Ursula von der Leyen, Orban's International Communications Office informed today. Hungary is at the same time suspending "all bilateral political contacts with her." According to Orban, Jourova's recent statements are "incompatible with her current mandate." In the letter, Orban claimed that Jourova said that in Hungary "a sick democracy" is being built, a "political attack against the democratically elected Government of Hungary" and a "humiliation to Hungary and the Hungarian people." Moreover, Orban recalled that the "Commission's role" is "neutral" and Jourova's wording are "a blatant violation of the principle of sincere cooperation." (ANSA).
