  Reasoned opinion

21/12/2020 | Reasoned opinion of the HNA _COM_2020_612
The examination of the enforcement of the principle of subsidiarity was carried out in accordance with Article 6 of Protocol No. 2 on the application of the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality attached to the EU Treaties as well as the relevant provisions of the Act No. XXXVI of 2012 on the Hungarian National Assembly and Resolution No. 10/2014. (II. 24.) on certain provisions of the Rules of Procedure with regard to five Proposals for Regulation of the Pact on Migration and Asylum (hereinafter: the Pact) [COM (2020) 610; COM (2020) 611; COM (2020) 612; COM (2020) 613; COM (2020) 614].

The Committee on European Affairs of the Hungarian National Assembly discussed the Pact on its meeting of 16 November 2020 in the framework of parliamentary scrutiny procedure. The Deputy State Secretary of the Ministry of Interior highlighted the key points of the Pact as well as the standpoint of the Government.

The Pact was also debated on the meeting of 14 December 2020 of the Committee on European Affairs.

During the meeting, the Committee adopted its Report B/14334. on the existence of the conditions for adoption of the reasoned opinion concerning the five Proposals for Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council of the Pact on Migration and Asylum.

Following a debate on the plenary session of the Hungarian National Assembly on 15 December 2020, the reasoned opinions were adopted by the Resolution 40/2020 (XII.16.) of Hungarian National Assembly with 142 votes in favour and without any objections or abstentions on 16 December 2020.

The main points of the reasoned opinions are as follows:

- The solidarity contribution calculated on the basis of an artificial distribution key is partly limited to the forms of relocation and return sponsorship. Thereby the competences of Member States are restricted.
- The Pact doesn’t take into account the national identities and constitutional traditions peculiar to Member States.
- The comprehensive approach of the Pact advocates the principles of solidarity and a fair sharing of responsibility, but the geographic, economic and demographic conditions of the Member States are less recognised.
- The Pact also limits Member States’ competence concerning decisions on asylum procedures and residence permits.
