'Soros tries to influence election campaigns', Hungarian minister says

Our guest is from an EU country that's been in the headlines a lot this year; often coming under fire from Brussels, with its PM Viktor Orban firing back. Katalin Novak is a Hungarian minister with a broad portfolio, including family and youth. She spoke to FRANCE 24's Catherine Nicholson about educational freedom in Hungary after the recent closure of Central European University in Budapest, which was founded by billionaire George Soros, as well as Soros himself, plus press freedom in Hungary.
