The creed of Hungary’s Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP) has not changed for the past 75 years; and it is the duty of its members to remain faithful to its eternal values, the leader of the party said on Sunday, marking KDNP’s 75th anniversary.
KDNP was set up as a party with a special mission, namely to be a representative of the Christian message, Zsolt Semjén, who is also deputy prime minister, told MTI.
At the heart of KDNP’s principles is to realise in the day-to-day life the eternal values the party stands for, as well as to appropriately respond to today’s challenges by adhering to them.
The eternal values KDNP stands for include personal respect, solidarity, subsidiarity, mutual assistance and a community, in other words the foundations of European civilisation, Semjén said.
The allied ruling Christian Democratic party is the only long-standing political party with a genuine Christian Democrat ideology in Hungary, he said.
Speaking about the present, Semjén qualified the ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance “the most successful political formation” in the history of Hungary, and of the European Union, saying that “it is unprecedented for a party alliance to govern with more than an absolute majority over a decade and to make such tremendous achievements.”
