The European Union Parliament decided in a vote on Wednesday to take punitive measures against Hungary on the grounds that the country is persistently ignoring democratic rules. With 448 votes in favor, 197 against and 48 abstentions, the motion was adopted at the plenary session in Strasbourg, France. It is the first time that the European legislature has called on the so-called Article 7 against an EU member country.
