According to npr.org, the EU has a hard time passing the EU Budget which contains the pandemic relief funds for hard-hit nations.
The European Union's landmark stimulus plan to assist member states whose economies have been battered by the COVID-19 pandemic is now in crisis after Hungary and Poland blocked passage of the 2021-2027 EU budget.
The two Eastern European countries say they're vetoing the budget and coronavirus recovery plan over language in the measure that would dole out EU funds to member states on condition that they uphold the bloc's rule-of-law standards.
Since financial aid to ease the pain of the economical effects of COVID-19 pandemic seems urgent, I am wondering if there is any mechanism to circumvent Hungary and Poland. Basically, to have all the countries except Hungary and Poland (sort of EU-25) approve a slightly smaller budget where Hungary and Poland do not contribute and also do not benefit from.
I imagine the alternative of the currently discussed agreement is significantly complicated, but it would be strange to be no other way.
Question: Is there a way for the EU except for Hungary and Poland to use Pandemic Relief Funds without approval coming from Hungary and Poland?
