Budapest, May 21 (MTI) – There is only a slight degree of difference between ruling Fidesz and radical nationalist Jobbik, their direction is the same, both parties are driving Hungary out of Europe, Gordon Bajnai, the leader of the E-PM alliance, said on Wednesday.
Fidesz’s policy is aimed at “opening to the East,” but what the party fails to add that it also means “closing to the West,” Bajnai told a press conference in Szeged, where he was campaigning for the May 25 MEP elections.
The result of Fidesz’s policy “is Hungary’s thinning relations with the West, with Europe,” Bajnai said, adding the party wants to move the country into the sphere of Russian influence.
Fidesz serves Russian interests, a proof of which is the pact concluded with Russia on the upgrade of the Paks nuclear plant. The project, if implemented, will be the biggest mistake of the past 50 years, he said.
Jobbik obviously serves Russian interests as well, as one of its MEP candidates seems to have been working for Russia, Bajnai, an ex-prime minister, said.
Voters will have to decide on May 25 which policy they support, that of Fidesz and Jobbik that aim to take Hungary back to the Russian sphere, or the one that had taken the country into the EU, Bajnai, the list leader of the E-PM for the MEP elections, said.
