Member of European Parliament Márton Gyöngyösi (Hungary) is joining the European Christian Political Movement , the only European political party explicitly promoting Christian values. ECPM President Valeriu Ghilețchi met with Márton Gyöngyösi this week and informed him of the ECPM’s board decision to accept him as individual member of the European party.
Mr. Gyöngyösi is a well-known Conservative Hungarian politician who formerly served in the Hungarian Parliament from 2010 to 2019. He has been often denouncing the high-level corruption in the country and the Hungarian government’s friendly demeanor towards authoritarians like Putin and Erdogan.
In the European Parliament, Márton Gyöngyösi serves as a member on the Committee on Foreign Affairs and as substitute on the Committee on International Trade and the Subcommittee on Human Rights.
The ECPM and MEP Gyöngyösi share the same values when it comes to human dignity and the preciousness of life, traditional marriage, protecting the EU external borders and curbing illegal migration. Mr. Gyöngyösi is joining ECPM’s other four MEPs who are weary of Brussels’ power grab and advocate for stronger national sovereignty and a strict enforcement of the principle of subsidiarity.
