(MTI) – The radical nationalist Jobbik party has four years of experience in parliament, a good programme and “excellent” candidates for the election that should bring about change after 24 years of failed governing, the party’s leader told a press conference on Saturday.
The three main pillars of Jobbik’s programme are livelihood, ensuring fair wages and pensions; order, ensuring public safety and the peace of citizens and families; and accountability, especially for corrupt politicians, he said in Kecskemet in central Hungary before meeting locals at a forum.
Concerning politicians, Vona said anyone violating the law must be punished without exception. He pledged to scrap parliamentary immunity and double for a politician or a parliamentary deputy the sentence an ordinary citizen would receive for the same crime.
Vona also pledged to declassify all records and documents.
Jobbik was already earlier popular among youth and men, but now has become increasingly popular among older people and women, said Vona, the party’s candidate for prime minister.
