BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary's government will decide on Monday on legal steps it plans to take to challenge a European parliament ruling against the country for flouting democratic standards, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday.

Orban told state radio that he expected a "serious legal debate" about the decision.

The European Parliament voted on Wednesday to sanction Hungary for flouting EU rules on democracy, civil rights and corruption.
