Hungary PM Orban says new European Commission needed

BUDAPEST - A new European Commission is needed with a new approach to the migration policy, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban told state radio on Friday, adding that the days of the current EU executive were "counted" with its mandate expiring next year.

Orban, one of the strongest opponents of the EU's migration policy, said the new Commission should not punish those countries protecting their borders from migrants.

"We need a new Commission... with a new approach," Orban told state radio. European Parliamentary elections will be held next year.
