EU Commission wants dialogue with Hungary on rule of law, democracy
Despite this, thousands of Hungarians protested in central Budapest against what the said was a crackdown on free thought and education.
Long exasperated by what it sees as Orban's authoritarian tendencies, Brussels is concerned at new Hungarian laws that it fears curtail freedoms and contradict asylum rules - culminating in criticism of an education bill that could shut down a Budapest university founded by USA financier George Soros. They university is in Budapest, not Bucharest.
"Orban's signature at the European Union summit two weeks ago to work for a united European Union while following it up with a new National Consultation that has the motto "Let's Stop Brussels", added the vice-president".
He said the probe will look into whether the new law conflicts with EU rules and could apply to other European universities.
"What the heck is going on?"
The UN Special Rapporteur on the freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, said, "The new law targets freedom of opinion and expression in Hungary, freedom of academic pursuit, the role that scholarship and research play in the expansion of knowledge and the development of democratic societies".

U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said in a release new asylum-seekers, including children, are detained in shipping containers surrounded by high razor fences at the border.
"We are ready for negotiations, but regarding migration, Hungary won't make changes to its positions", Kovacs said. Soros, whose ideal of an "open society" is squarely at odds with Orban's self-styled "illiberal democracy", has often been vilified by the prime minister.
The dispute over the university has come to symbolise rival visions of Hungary's future.
"But in the formal sense there is, in the view of the Commission today, not a systemic threat to the rule of law in Hungary". The College discussed last week's amendments made to the 2011 National Higher Education Act by Hungary's Parliament restricting the educational and funding activities of foreign universities in the country. The Hungarian leader also accuses Soros of trying to illegitimately influence his government and Hungary's politics through support of non-governmental organizations such as Transparency International. "Taken cumulatively, the overall situation in Hungary is a cause of concern", European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans said.
Orban's government has said the aim of the new legislation was to address administrative shortcomings of foreign universities in Hungary.
They will also be required to have a campus and faculties in their home country - conditions not met by the CEU, which is registered in the United States. He also mentioned the discrimination of Roma children in education and the protection of pregnant working women as areas where Hungary had failed to respond to European Union concerns.
